The SARAH Endowment Fund exists so that the SARAH Agencies can focus on making a difference for the participants they serve. By increasing the size of the Endowment, the future of the SARAH Agencies and their missions can be preserved.
The Endowment Fund grows primarily through “Planned Gifts” either made in lifetime or upon death, as part of a donor’s estate planning. It does not need to be complicated, and there are typically no additional costs to include a charitable gift in estate planning documents.
An even simpler gift can be made by designating SARAH as a beneficiary (or contingent beneficiary) of a retirement account or life insurance policy which is no longer needed to support a loved one. Depending upon a donor’s circumstances, valuable tax benefits can be realized by making these types of gifts.
There are several forms of Planned Gifts that are commonly used by families wishing to make a lasting contribution to SARAH.
