You can support Harmony At Home by including a gift to the organization in your estate plan.
Some of the benefits to you of planned giving include:
- the ability to make a larger charitable gift than you thought possible

As a donor, you are in complete control of your gift. You can designate it with a specific purpose in mind, or leave your gift unrestricted to be applied in the areas of greatest need. A charitable bequest is simple – just a sentence in your will or trust is all that is needed. It is flexible – with most planned giving techniques, you can change your mind at any time. It is tax-deductible – when you make a gift to Harmony At Home, you will receive a deduction for estate or income tax purposes.
You can specify a monetary gift, designate a percentage of your total estate, or give that portion of your estate that remains after all other bequests are satisfied. There are also other ways to give, including:
- a gift of life insurance
- a charitable gift annuity
- a charitable trust
- a gift of a residence with a retained life estate
- a gift of an IRA account or other retirement asset
