Welcome to your resource for charitable gift planning!

Since 1992 generous individuals have been supporting older adults with bequests, trusts and other carefully designed gifts to the Eskaton Foundation. Including us in your own long-term financial plans affords you the opportunity to:

  • Create a gift that benefits you and your family.
  • Bring immediate tax advantages to both you and your heirs.
  • Provide valuable assistance to the Eskaton Foundation, helping it flourish.

We've created this humble Web site to help you dream a little, about our future and yours. There are many easy giving options from which you can choose.
Try our Build Your Gift planner, if you're not sure where to begin. By answering a few basic questions, this interactive tool guides you through the process of narrowing down your choices. It is simple to use.

If you already have gift options in mind, please check out Compare Gifts to see how your choices match up or go to eBrochures to request specific information on a planning option. For more information or assistance, please contact Kim Rhinehelder at 916-334-0810 or kim.rhinehelder@eskaton.org with any questions.
