Planning Your Legacy
Increase Font Size Decrease Font Size

Gift planning is a profound opportunity to make a statement about all that you hold most dear—your loved ones, your passions, your community. The thought and care you put into making plans today will give you the peace of mind of knowing that your legacy will indeed reflect your life, your beliefs, and your values. What's more, you can also make an enduring impact on the lives of LGBT people – even for generations to come.

But let's face it: many of us put off planning for the future. Maybe we do because it seems very complicated. Or maybe we're afraid to think about death. Or maybe we think our "estate" is too small for planning to matter, or we don't expect to have an estate at all. But gift planning doesn't have to be complicated. And, far from being somber, it's really about defining of your own life and legacy—no matter how many or how few assets you have.

When you support your favorite LGBT nonprofits and/or Horizons Foundation's LGBT Community Endowment Fund you'll also be part of a wider movement to meet the needs, secure the rights, and celebrate the lives of LGBT people for generations to come. Your commitment and leadership can serve as a powerful inspiration to others.

Best of all, your planning can address all of these goals—you don't have to choose just one.

There are many different ways to help Horizons Foundation increase resources for the LGBT community. In our Guide to Gift Planning (PDF), you will find out how you can help the LGBT community while allowing you and your loved ones to enjoy financial benefits. This site can also help you start planning your gift today.
