Legacy Giving

Your legacy gift can ensure that the life-saving services of The Dwelling Place will always be here…

The Dwelling Place shelters some of the most vulnerable citizens in our society. While some people may consider homelessness a hopeless situation and turn away, we know that you care.

A legacy gift costs you and your family nothing today, and in the future can enable homeless women to make the difficult journey from fear and helplessness to hope and independence.

There are many ways to help The Dwelling Place to continue its vital work:

  • Donate appreciated securities, mutual funds, or a paid-up insurance policy that is no longer needed.
  • Name TDP as the beneficiary of a retirement plan, insurance policy or investment account.
  • Establish investment vehicles ( i.e. charitable trusts or gift annuities) that can provide income during your lifetime and make a gift to TDP in the future.

When you speak with your financial advisor about estate planning, please remember that your gift to The Dwelling Place can transform lives.
