Legacy Giving

What did you inherit from your parents or your grandparents? Whether it was your grandfather’s pocket watch; the family farm; a treasured family heirloom or perhaps your mother’s smile… We all become heirs to something. You see, regardless of the size of the estate you inherited something. Maybe it was their attitude about giving.

Winston Churchill said “We make a living by what we get but we make a life by what we give.” It’s not a question of what we have when we die – the question is what we do with what we have while we are alive. Proverbs 13:22 teaches us that “A good man leaves an inheritance for his children’s children.” The first step in that process is to start thinking about what kind of legacy I want to leave behind. What do you want your grandchildren to remember about your life? Do you want them to remember how much you accumulated or how much you helped others?

The whole point of having a legacy is for others – often family members – to follow in your steps. It’s like a veteran’s parallel pride: you want your kids to feel the same patriotism.

Real Estate

Sheridan House has a Donor Advised Fund at the National Christian Foundation (NCF) set up so assets such as real estate, boats and even business interests can be donated with a fair-market value deduction.

Whether you own a beachfront home or a family farm, the team at the NCF can help you turn your valuable property into a family legacy gift to Sheridan House that will be life-changing to the families we work with! By giving real estate BEFORE THE SALE, instead of writing checks to donate, you’ll improve your cash flow, reduce or eliminate capital gains taxes, and be able to help more people.
