Planned Giving

Planned Giving Event -- August 10th, 2019

If a couple of tweaks to your giving would enable you to increase your support of survivors at SafeHouse Denver -- and perhaps decrease your taxes -- you would make them, wouldn't you? Of course you would! You just need to know how. That's why we're hosting a Planned Giving Presentation on Saturday, August 10th, at SafeHouse Denver's nonresidential facility.


SATURDAY, August 10th, 1:00 - 2:30 p.m.

Our thanks to Ryley, Carlock & Applewhite for generously providing lunch.

"Philanthropically minded individuals often meet their charitable giving goals using after-tax dollars. From a tax standpoint, this is the most inefficient way to give,” according to Dylan Metzner, a passionate SafeHouse Denver Board Member and local tax attorney who specializes in estate planning. “Unfortunately, many of our donors are not aware of the various options they have to maximize their donations to SafeHouse Denver.”

Metzner wants to change this. That’s why he’s generously volunteering his time to share his expertise at a Planned Giving Event on August 10th, 2019, at our non-residential Counseling & Advocacy Center. His presentation will focus on how planned giving can minimize tax ramifications for donors while increasing benefits for the nonprofits they support. Learn more by clicking here, or RSVP now

Created in 2014, the Legacy of Hope Society recognizes the extraordinary commitment of people who include SafeHouse Denver in their estate plans.

Members of the Legacy of Hope Society receive special invitations to events and are listed in our annual report and on our website. This special recognition acknowledges the long-term impact of their support, which builds a strong, solid foundation for SafeHouse Denver’s domestic violence prevention and early intervention efforts. Visibility of our supporters’ investment in our mission can encourage others to do the same.

The generous, far-reaching support provided by members of the Society allows SafeHouse Denver to pursue its mission of assisting adults, children and youth in reclaiming their right to a life free from domestic violence well into the future.
