Legacy Planning

A planned gift made through a will or trust to Guideposts Foundation is a gift that can help ensure the long-term financial stability of Guideposts Foundation while providing you with the opportunity to become part of Guideposts Foundation's future. We would like to help you consider this kind of gift while planning for your long-term goals. All gifts are administered in strict compliance with the wishes of the donor. Please consult your tax advisor when considering this kind of gift. The following language is suggested when revising your Will: "I give, devise and bequeath to Guideposts Foundation (insert amount of money, percentage of estate, or describe property) to be used for the furtherance of its mission and charitable programs." For more information on planning your legacy you can read our booklet Contemplating the Legacy of our Lives. For additional information please call 800-728-5653.
