Planned Giving

Mar 8, 2017 | Get Involved

All of us are indebted to those who preceded us.  We drink from wells others have dug.  We sit under the shade of trees others have planted.  We share our faith from foundations we did not lay.

At the same time, we are the seeds of the future.  We dream and set things in motion.  The fruits of our decisions today will be known only by those who we will never meet.  What will your legacy be?

As you plan your future and reflect on the legacy you will leave behind, consider the following ways you can strengthen families and communities through a partnership with Habitat for Humanity of Catawba Valley:

  • Cash Gift Donations
  • Gifts of Stock
  • Gifts of Real Estate and Land
  • Beneficiary in Will
  • Life Insurance Beneficiary
  • Donations through Charitable Gift Annuities
  • Donations through Charitable Remainder Trusts
  • Gifts through Charitable Lead trusts, which ultimately return the trust principal to you
  • Gifts through Charitable Lead trusts, which ultimately pass the trust principal to loved ones
  • Making Habitat for Humanity of Catawba Valley the beneficiary of your home while continuing to live there.

Homeownership with Habitat

For Habitat homeowners, a home means stability.  If you’re someone that has always had a home and family, then you, like me, probably have never fully appreciated the importance of the stability that comes with living in your own home.  Habitat helps its homeowners build stability for themselves and their families in many areas.
