Legacy Society & EndowmentWhen you join The Legacy Society and make a bequest to Just in Time, your commitment to a charitable gift will live on in productive lives, contributions to the economy, and healthy families that break the cycle of foster care.
In 2010, The Legacy Society of Just in Time for Foster Youth was established to give current and future foster youth the essential community of support necessary to navigate the path to a successful and satisfying future. Sustaining the crucial combination of resources, training, and relationships with caring adults is critical for any young person to become capable, confident, and connected. That’s the promise your gift helps us to fulfill.
What is a Bequest?
A bequest is a section of your will or living trust that directs a gift from your estate to the person or institution of your choice after you die. Bequests may be used to provide gifts of money, real estate, stocks, or even works of art or jewelry.
• Your assets remain in your control throughout your lifetime.
• You can modify your gift to address changing circumstances.
• Under current tax law, there is no upper limit on the estate tax deduction for your charitable gifts.
