Planned Giving

Today's Plan. Tomorrow's Gift.

Regardless of the size of your estate, planned giving offers you the chance to help sustain and grow the important work of Equinox. Planned gifts can be made with cash, real estate, stocks, bonds, personal property, life insurance, or a bequest in your living trust or will.

Planned gifts may provide additional income for you and your heirs, help reduce income and estate taxes, and relieve you or your heirs of complicated financial management responsibilities, all while helping you fulfill your charitable objectives.

A planned gift, such as a bequest, is:

  • Easy to arrange with a simple written statement in your will, such as:
    "I give, devise and bequest Equinox, inc..."
  • Affordable (even for a modest estate)
  • Can be easily modified to address your changing needs
  • Will not alter your current lifestyle or family's security
  • Enjoy immediate or deferred tax benefits for you and your family

Ask your financial advisor or estate attorney how this can work simply for you and for those we serve.

Please contact Christina Rajotte in our Development Office at 518.434.6135, x5366 or crajotte@equinoxinc.org to request any additional information that may be helpful to you. We are happy to discuss your wishes or even schedule a tour.

If you have already included Equinox in your will, please let us know–we would like to thank you and to recognize you for your legacy gift that will support our critical programs for generations to come.

Thank you for your consideration of a life-changing gift.

Your gift will help Equinox touch thousands of lives.    DONATE
