Legacy Giving: What Are Your Options?
While we often think first of “in-the-moment” donations online, by check, or at an event, legacy giving (also known as planned giving) can be a way to make an even greater and lasting impact. There are several options for legacy gifts that create and sustain a community of services, skills, and support for people with vision loss.
For more details on the ins and outs of these options, visit PlannedGiving.com: Types of Planned Gifts.
