Planned Giving

Planned Giving

Unlike a cash gift, a planned gift is typically made from assets in your estate, rather than from disposable income, and comes to fruition after your lifetime.

By naming Habitat for Humanity of South Central Minnesota as a beneficiary of your will, living trust, or retirement plan assets, you help bring hope to future generations of families in need. While some gifts are large, it is not the size of the gift that counts. It is the desire to make a difference and to make an impact through strategic planned giving and to leave a lasting legacy. Your gift allows you to transform the lives of your hardworking, low-income neighbors, and revitalize your city’s underserved neighborhoods for decades to come.
