“I wish I could do more.” That’s the comment we often hear from volunteers, donors and supporters of Habitat CFC. Our friends are so inspired by Habitat CFC’s partner families that they want to ensure more families have the security and hope of owning a home far into the future.

What if we say, “You can do something extraordinary.” We’re talking about the opportunity you have to make a planned gift. Unlike a cash gift, a planned gift is typically made from your assets in your estate rather than disposable income, and comes to fruition after your lifetime.

It is a misconception that making a planned gift is only for the wealthy.

The truth is, even people of modest means can make a big difference. Strange as it may sound, a planned gift can be simple to do and cost very little. The most common way is to name Habitat for Humanity of Coastal Fairfield County as a beneficiary in an IRA, life insurance policy, other financial account or in your will.

Every gift – no matter the size – is helpful. By informing us of your intentions to make a planned gift, you become a member of Habitat CFC’s Legacy Circle. If you’ve already done this, please contact us so we can thank and recognize you!
