Legacy Gifts

Leave a legacy.

seedling_A2CBC23E8A37CYour legacy reflects the meaning of your life. Choosing Oneida County Habitat for Humanity  (OCHFH) in your estate plans will leave a legacy for the entire community. We encourage you to consider a charitable contribution to OCHFH when you meet with your financial adviser to plan your estate.

It takes a special kind of person to make plans for the benefit of unknown people in the unknowable future, and the Habitat for Humanity Legacy Gifts was designed to recognize these forward-thinking friends. We are always delighted to welcome new members to this exclusive group, and there are only two requirements for membership. First, make arrangements to benefit Oneida County Habitat for Humanity beyond your lifetime. These arrangements might include a bequest in your will, or a plan that provides life income and income tax benefits, like a Charitable Gift Annuity. Second,  let us know about your plans. It is not necessary to specify a dollar value for these plans, but having some idea of the details allows us to plan for the future and is appreciated.

You can name Oneida County Habitat for Humanity as the beneficiary for any of the following:

  • Wills and living trusts
  • Retirement plans
  • Life insurance policies
  • Charitable remainder trusts
  • Charitable lead trusts (These trusts provide income to OCHFH during the term of the trust and assets to your heirs on the trust’s termination)
  • Real estate (You can transfer the deed of your home to OCHFH while keeping the right to live there for your lifetime)

Habitat for Humanity does not provide tax or legal advice, we recommend you contact a Planned Giving experts who can provide information.
