PLANNED GIVING THROUGH YOUR ESTATE
Planned Giving is an effective and mutually beneficial way of giving to Family Promise. By making a planned gift, you assist us in our mission to help low-income and homeless families reclaim and maintain their independence, while enjoying the benefits of capital gains tax savings, increased income, and income-tax savings. Most importantly, a planned gift maximizes your giving potential while providing for your future financial security and that of your loved ones.
Planned gifts include bequests, life income gifts, and other deferred giving arrangements.
Bequests and Other Planned Giving Contributions
Today’s dreamers build the foundation for tomorrow’s dreams. It’s easy to provide for your own family today while helping families in need build a brighter tomorrow.
To help you start your will and include a gift to Family Promise, we offer FreeWill, a free online tool to guide you through the process of creating a legally valid will or trust. In just 20 minutes you can write your will or document your wishes before finalizing your plans with an attorney.
Start your legacy with Family Promise and FreeWill today!

Under a gift annuity agreement, you make a gift to Family Promise in return for the organization’s promise to make an annual payment to you of a specified dollar amount for as long as you live. The amount of the annual payment depends upon your age and is based on a fixed percentage of the initial fair market value of your gift. A portion of your gift may be tax-advantaged.
Charitable Remainder Trusts
A charitable remainder trust may be designed to provide you with income throughout your lifetime as well as support to Family Promise upon your death. The trust may be established with a gift of cash or appreciated stock. A trust can be structured in one of two ways – either as an annuity trust or unitrust. The important difference between the two options involves the way distributions are handled.
Charitable Lead Trusts
Charitable lead trusts provide income to your designated charity for a set period of time. At the end of the gift period, the property you placed in the trust either returns to you, or is passed on to named individuals.
Please contact us for further information planned giving to Family Promise.
What else does my donation help with?So glad you asked! A donation of $20 can buy a tank of gas for our guest families to meet potential landlords for apartment searches, take their child to day care, and drive to work. Larger donations of $50 will provide one meal for a family of four. $100 will help pay for shelter supplies including toilet paper, cleaning supplies, paper towels, and diapers. Donations larger than $100 will be applied to car insurance, car repairs, and meeting medical needs (dental check up, medical appointments/medication) of our guests.
Can I drop off donations at the office?Yes! We welcome donations of any kind. If we cannot use them or have room, we can make sure they get offered to other shelter agencies in the Valley. We are located at 561 W. Nelson Ave. in Wasilla.
Can I donate online?Yes! You can donate on our website or Facebook.
