Members of the Safe Passage Visionaries have ensured the longevity of their support by including Safe Passage in their estate plans. Estate planning has many benefits to both the donor and recipient. It can save you money on taxes, while making a real impact in the lives of those you leave behind. Your estate planning helps you make more impactful charitable gifts which you might not be able to consider during your lifetime.
Please think about including Safe Passage in your will or estate plan to ensure that we can continue our mission within the garbage dump community of Guatemala City for years to come. Your thoughtful planning will help us continue transforming lives by providing our students with an excellent education, a higher quality of life, and pathways to a job with dignity, so they can achieve a better future for themselves and their families.
The most common and easiest way you can make a planned gift to Safe Passage is simply making a bequest by including language in your will or living trust that leaves a portion of your estate to the organization.
You can designate Safe Passage as a beneficiary of a life insurance policy or retirement account.
“Like Hanley’s own legacy, Carol’s incredible bequest to Safe Passage will continue to impact so many lives in our community and her gift will live on, long after her.”
