Bequests help to secure the future of Clelian Height’s mission. Your will can be another option through which you can invest in the future of Clelian Heights.
Supporters may choose to designate Clelian Heights as the beneficiary of all or a portion of their life insurance policy. You can ultimately make a gift that is larger than its cost while taking advantage of tax break opportunities.
A gift of appreciated securities allows for a significant contribution to Clelian Heights with the added advantages of tax savings.
Many donors take the opportunity to double their gift through their employers matching gift program for charitable donations made by their employees. If you work for a matching gift company, be sure to complete the necessary paperwork and mail it with your gift to increase the total amount of your donation.
Make a contribution to Clelian Heights in honor of a friend or loved one. The person honored will receive notice of this gift (the donation amount is not included in the letter). The donor will receive an acknowledgement confirming the gift as well. A wonderful opportunity to recognize birthdays, anniversaries, in lieu of Christmas gifts, for Mothers Day and Fathers Day, or any special occasion you wish to recognize.
Donor Recognition Plaques
Make a large one-time contribution or a long-term pledged gift to the Endowment Fund to secure the future of our children. This can be designated toward an Educator Gift, Millennium Gift or a Named Scholarship. Donors are listed by name on the Donor Endowment Plaque according to recognition levels. Gifts to the Endowment may be made in any amount and are professionally invested to insure long-term growth.
Remember the memory of a deceased love one by requesting in the obituary that memorial donations be made to Clelian Heights. Or make a personal memorial gift at the time of the death of a loved one. Clelian Heights Memorial cards are available for this. They can be provided to the funeral home at your request. A Memorial Plaque outside the chapel recognizes those for whom a significant donation has been given.
A Memorial Gift is another way to provide comfort to any surviving family with a deceased loved one. Your gift shows your support during their time of loss. The family will receive a card regarding this gift (a donation amount is not listed) and the donor will receive a confirmation of the gift as well.
