Ensuring Help for Our Clients into the Future

legacyCircle

The Legacy Circle was created to support Angel View's long-term mission of providing services through generous philanthropic estate gifts and grants. Angel view is proud to acknowledge and steward estate gifts made by supporters who become members of the prestigious Legacy Circle. Members can be recognized by the name of the donor or donors, in honor of or in memory of loved ones, or anonymously. See why one couple joined!

There are many ways you can contribute to Angel View now and in the future. All will assist children and adults with disabilities; several may provide beneficial tax consequences. Please contact your legal and tax professional for full details. To discuss bequests, trusts or gifts with Angel View, please contact Duke Graham, director of development, at (760) 835-0464 or via email at dgraham@angelview.org.

People sometimes call us to say they would like to leave all of their household goods to Angel View. We appreciate the generosity! In order to accomplish that goal, the gift would need to be stated in a will or living trust (please see below).

Some of the most common types of Planned Gifts are:

Charitable Remainder Trusts
A charitable remainder trust enables a donor to transfer cash or assets, especially appreciated assets, to a trust and receive income for life. The named charity receives the benefit of the cash or assets.

Charitable Lead Trusts
The reverse of a charitable remainder trust, the charitable lead trust pays an annuity or a unitrust amount to Angel View for the term of the trust. The remainder is paid to the donor or a named beneficiary.

Life Insurance
Donors can name Angel View as a death beneficiary on a life insurance policy or transfer ownership of a policy to Angel View.

Outright Contributions
An outright gift of cash, securities, property or other assets may entitle you to receive a charitable deduction.

Will or Living Trust Bequests
You may leave a bequest of cash, household goods, stocks and bonds, or properties to Angel View in your will or living trust. Doing so may enable you to take advantage of the unlimited estate tax deduction for property that passes outright to a charity.

Timmy

Timmy’s Story

Timmy spent his childhood baffling the medical community. His digestive issues and seizure activity were so profound, doctors didn’t understand how he could still be alive. His mom devoted herself to medical research and finding a place that could care for her son. Between hospitalizations, he lived in various group homes in New York. At the last one, he had so many injuries his mom sought another solution. They headed west.

Since moving into an Angel View home, Timmy is calmer, more expressive, and has far fewer seizures. He loves the staff, his housemates, our therapy dogs and his word board. He’s so adored by staff, his mother says happily, “Now he has more than one mommy.”
