There are many ways that you, your friends and family can help us continue our mission. Planned Giving allows an individual to support a non-profit agency beyond their lifetime.
Some of the most common methods of Planned Giving are through a Bequest in a Will or Trust; by assigning Meals on Wheels of the Salinas Valley as the beneficiary of a Life Insurance Policy, IRA, tax-sheltered annuity or profit-sharing plan; as well as Charitable Gift Annuities that offer tax advantages to you and your estate while supporting our program.
With any of these options, it is best to consult your attorney, financial advisor or accountant to discuss your specific circumstances. For more information on how Meals on Wheels of the Salinas Valley can fit into your Planned Giving, please contact our Executive Director.
