Planned Giving
A planned gift is a charitable donation provided during a donor's lifetime but the payments are not received until sometime in the future. The Planned Giving program encourages donors to consider the possibility of supporting Our Place Community of Hope through, for example, a will or as a beneficiary of life insurance.  The work of Our Place has benefitted substantially from a number of individuals who have remembered us in their wills.  We thank them and their families greatly.
