Designating a Bequest to Help Philadelphia's Children

on 29 September 2015

 

Leaving a gift or donation of any size in your will, also called a bequest, is an extraordinary act of generosity and ensures your legacy of helping families who need it most. Bequests provide support to Turning Points for Children beyond your lifetime and help to maintain the important services to raise safe, healthy educated and strong children.

Bequests are among the most popular and easiest ways to make a planned gift. When you make a gift through a will or revocable trust to Turning Points, you leave a lasting legacy to Philadelphia children in crisis.

Turning Points has been around since 1840 and has been the recipient of many planned gifts. These gifts have ensured that Philadelphia families continue to receive services during financial crises when other funding runs out. Please consider adding Turning Points to your will to make a lasting legacy. 

 

To learn more about planned giving, please consult your attorney, accountant or financial adviser and contact Eartha Holland at (267)315-7584 or This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it..
