Legacy Giving

There are many ways to leave a legacy.

If you would like to make a long-term gift to Blanchet House, visit our planned giving website to learn more.

Most legacy giving options fall into one of the following three categories:


Planned gifts are designed to fit within a donor’s comprehensive estate plans, fulfilling the donor’s philanthropic goals, reducing income taxes, avoiding capital gains or estate taxes, and retaining lifetime income if desired, all while helping to guarantee Blanchet House’s future financial support. Common forms of planned giving include charitable gift annuities and donor advised funds.



A nonprofit’s endowments represent its permanently held capital. Depending on the guidelines established for each particular endowment, income and/or principal from the endowment can be used to support the our work.


Non-traditional gifts to Blanchet House could include gifts of personal property, life insurance policies, retirement plans, real estate, and appreciated stocks. Blanchet House would be happy to discuss these and other options with interested donors.
