Support and Sustain Center on Halsted

Did you know planned giving through a will or trust sustains our efforts so we can continue our work? Planned giving provides the flexibility to balance personal financial goals and ensures your contribution continues to build and empower the LGBTQ community the Center serves.

Our donors consider bequests and living trusts to be the most convenient because of the simple options. Donors choose a percentage of the estate or a remaining portion after other bequests are completed.

Types of bequests include:

  • Unrestricted Bequests: You allow Center on Halsted to utilize your contribution for services and programs that are in dire need of support.

  • Restricted Bequests: You designate how Center on Halsted utilizes your contribution for a specific program and services.

  • Specific Bequest: Provides a specific asset to Center on Halsted, such as cash or securities.

  • Residuary Bequest: Provides a percentage of your remaining estate to Center on Halsted after specific requests, debts, and expenses have been fulfilled.

  • Contingent Bequest: Provide Center on Halsted a portion of your estate if an individual beneficiary dies before you.

Planned giving donors also utilize charitable remainder trusts, charitable lead trusts, gift annuities, life insurance, and retirement plans. Center on Halsted encourages you to contact your trusted financial and/or legal advisors for the financial benefits associated with planned giving.
