What is Legacy Giving?

A Legacy gift, also known as “planned giving”, is a gift made by an individual through a will or other formal designation such as art, insurance policies, estate gifts, and endowments. Generally, a legacy gift is arranged between a donor and their financial advisor, reflecting the donor’s values now and their dreams of the future. Legacy giving looks far beyond the now and focuses forward to ensure youth of the future continue to have access to mental health support.
