Estate Planning

Consider leaving a lasting legacy to families in need who want to improve the lives of their family and children, by including Habitat for Humanity of San Antonio in your estate plans.  You can continue your support in your will by giving:

  • Bequest in your will or revocable trust
  • Gift of life insurance naming Habitat for Humanity of San Antonio as the beneficiary
  • Gift of retirement benefits such as an IRA, 401K or 403(b)
  • Charitable gift annuity
  • Charitable remainder trust

You may find that you can make a larger gift than you ever thought possible by giving the remainder of your retirement account, pension plan, or other retirement planning vehicle.  This allows you to provide for your family first, then your charitable interests.

Many people have life insurance policies that they originally took out to protect mortgages that have since been paid or educational plans that have been completed.  These policies would make great charitable gifts.  Alternatively, you may decide to give a large gift by purchasing a new insurance policy.  If you name Habitat for Humanity of San Antonio as the irrevocable owner and beneficiary, the premiums are tax deductible (to the extent allowed by law).

Consult with your financial advisor, attorney, or accountant to consider the best options for you.

If you have questions or would like to make your charitable intentions known, please contact Stephanie C. Wiese, Vice President at 210-223-5203 x157 or email at stephaniewiese@habitatsa.org.
