Planned Giving with Greater Matthews Habitat for Humanity

A planned gift is a philanthropic gift from your will, living trust, retirement plan, or other estate assets. A legacy gift can allow you to maintain assets during your lifetime and often provide tax advantages for you and your loved ones.


As we continually strive to build a community where everyone has a safe and decent place to live, planned giving plays a significant role in securing the future of our mission. Planned giving is for everyone. Contrary to common perception, planned giving isn't just for the wealthy or those in their twilight years. Regardless of your age or financial status, a planned gift can be structured to align with your individual circumstances and goals, making it a viable and impactful option for anyone passionate about making a long-term difference. Through this route, you can leave a legacy that touches lives long after you've gone, allowing us to forge ahead with our mission of creating and preserving affordable housing.


Planned giving—often in the form of bequests, retirement funds, life insurance policies, and other assets—is a powerful tool for long-term financial planning. It provides individuals with a way to manage their wealth and assets for their beneficiaries and offers a lasting way to make a difference in our community.
