Planned and Estate Giving

Thank you for your interest in supporting Literacy Pittsburgh and its mission through a planned gift. Planned giving enables you to take advantage of many kinds of gifts to create a legacy with a lasting impact. The Heritage Society was established to recognize and honor those who choose to support Literacy Pittsburgh through an estate or planned gift.

Members of the Heritage Society have expressed their commitment to Literacy Pittsburgh through a very special and important form of financial support. These donors have named Literacy Pittsburgh as a beneficiary of a planned gift. Such gifts might include a bequest, a charitable income gift, such as a charitable gift annuity, charitable remainder trust, or a gift of life insurance or retirement assets.

If you have included Literacy Pittsburgh in your estate plans or otherwise made it the beneficiary of a planned gift, we would like to take the opportunity to thank you and recognize you as a member of the Heritage Society. Please contact us today to let us know that you have provided for Literacy Pittsburgh in a planned gift. Your gift may inspire generosity in others. If you are considering making a planned gift to Literacy Pittsburgh we invite you to contact us so that we may discuss the many options available to you.
