Planned or Legacy Giving

Over nearly five decades, JustDane has brought together people from all walks of life to partner with us. Our core values of inclusion, compassion, forgiveness and courage define our legacy.  Now you can make your legacy a part of our legacy.

Your estate plans can help sustain the people and causes that you hold dear. Whether your estate is modest or exceptional, the thoughtful and well-advised choices you make about your legacy can open the way for you to advance values that mean the most to you.

What is planned giving?

A planned gift is a way to meet your personal financial goals while you provide JustDane with vital, long-term support.

Tailoring a gift to fit your financial, estate and tax plans has a number of benefits. You can gain tax rewards, maintain your financial security and make a truly meaningful contribution to JustDane’s future.

As you contemplate your aspirations for planned giving, please be aware that you can direct a bequest toward JustDane’s areas of greatest need, or you can focus on one particular area of our work that has special meaning for you.

We recommend that you consult with a professional adviser – a lawyer or financial consultant – to explore options that best align with your own financial position. They will consider your personal financial circumstances to help you receive maximum benefits from existing tax laws.

If you have questions or another way you would like to leave a legacy gift to JustDane, please contact Kathy Eckenrod at (608) 807-9107 or kathy@justdane.org. And we would appreciate it if you would let Kathy know if you are making a planned legacy gift.

Planned Giving Options

You can make a provision in your will or living trust that directs a portion of your estate to a named beneficiary, such as JustDane. A bequest offers these benefits:

  • Make a major gift while preserving these assets during your life.
  • Reduce your federal estate taxes.
  • Leave a legacy of goodwill that will serve vulnerable people in our community.

Cash, securities, real estate and tangible personal property, such as works of art, can be willed to JustDane through your estate.
