Planned Giving

Leave Your Legacy with a Planned Gift

Since 1977, SafeHouse Denver has invested in the future of the Denver metro area by providing programs and services that help survivors of domestic violence pursue safe, abuse-free lives.

We invite you to join us in continuing to build this safe future by becoming a member of our Legacy of Hope Society. Created in 2014, the Legacy of Hope Society recognizes the extraordinary commitment of people who include SafeHouse Denver in their estate plans. Through planned gifts, our programs will consistently grow, ensuring that the organization will remain financially strong and your values as a donor will be sustained.

Ways To Give

There are several ways you can make planned gifts to SafeHouse Denver and enjoy tax and income benefits:

  • Bequest (Will or Living Trust)

Planned giving is a way to integrate your personal, financial and estate planning by making charitable gifts that benefit you, your family and the nonprofit organization of your choice. When you make a planned gift to SafeHouse Denver, you make a lasting investment in the safety and support of survivors of domestic violence.

Perhaps most importantly, planned gifts are an extension of what you value as an individual and leave a legacy around that purpose, kindness and motivation for change.
