Plan a Gift

The Legacy of the Foundation

Planned gifts make it easier for both you and the Foundation to allocate resources for the future. Some gifts can provide a significant tax deduction now and an income for you or a loved one for life. Your planned gift of any size can fund specific programs or help wherever the need is greatest.

Why give to our Foundation?

A planned gift to The Legacy Society often results in considerable tax benefits for donors and their estates, while helping to ensure the future of an organization dear to them.

Types of gifts:

  • Bequest
  • Retirement account
  • Charitable remainder trust
  • Charitable lead trust
  • Charitable gift annuity
  • Life insurance policy
  • IRA benefit


“ECS thrives today in part because Deaconess Sophie Miller had compassion for older people and acted upon it more than 90 years ago. Since then, thousands of donors have followed her lead. We are grateful. Thank you for giving a gift or planning a gift to ensure that ECS continues to provide welcoming homes and caring services long into the future.”

– Dick Patterson, former Board Member/Chair, The Episcopal Communities & Services Foundation, supporting Episcopal Communities & Services
