Planned giving offers tax savings for you and ensures the longevity of Steps to HOPE


Endowments and Bequests

Planned giving is all about a long-term strategy to keep the doors open at Steps to HOPE far into the future.  It is any major gift, made in lifetime or at death as part of a donor’s overall financial and/or estate planning.  Whether you donate cash, appreciated securities or stock, real estate, artwork, partnership interests, personal property, life insurance, a retirement plan, etc., the benefits of funding a planned gift can make this type of charitable giving very beneficial to you and to us. Gifting appreciated stock is one of the most effective means of tax savings available. Please call 828-894-2340 or email to request more information regarding planned giving. 

Many thanks to Family Violence Prevention Services Program, US DHHS, and NC Council for Women for financial support and to our major golf tournament sponsors.
