Make a Difference in Your own Way
Legacy Farms needs your help. We have come a long way and we will continue to maintain this forward direction with the help of our donors and sponsors. The best way to help NOW, is by helping us get the word out. We need marketing materials, fundraisers, promotional material, t-shirts, etc. etc. and all the takes money. Right now anything helps, let us know how you can help. If you just want to donate than hit the donate button below, but if you have something else you can help with, then go ahead and contact us and tell us what you're thinking. We are always open for ideas and input, and we are grateful for anything you can give.
Legacy Farms depends upon your donations and monetary gifts to succeed. By providing us with your donations you will ensure our program continues and those who live and work on the farm have all of their needs met. Your kindness translates into something much more than just material goods, it provides an opportunity to prosper where there was none in the past.
We are seeking people, as well as their companies to help Legacy Farms meet our goals. Many employers sponsor matching gift programs and will match charitable contributions made by their employees. Why not find out from your HR/Personnel department if your employer participates in a matching gift program.
Legacy Garden, our maiden program, is our first step to getting Legacy Farms off the ground. By providing us with the tools and resources to keep the garden healthy, you will be helping Legacy farms get the exposure it needs to generate funding and inspire others to get involved.
Gifts of Securities
A gift of stock you have owned for a number of years can have tax advantages for you. If you have owned the stock for more than a year and it has increased in value, its outright gift to Legacy Farms would mean a significant tax savings. You are not required to pay capital gains tax on the appreciation, so the actual cost to you, the donor, is often far less than the value to the Home.
Gifts of Real Estate
By providing Legacy Farms with the property, residence and a farm needed to get our program going, you would change the lives of numerous families. Your sole donation would ensure Legacy Farms will be providing a new start for between 40-50 families and their adult children with different abilities. We are open to considering new ideas, whether it’s a dairy farm, vineyard, or organic produce, we have the abilities and staff to take over your land and turn it into something far beyond its original purpose. We would also consider a donation of property as a gift to be sold for the benefit of Legacy Farms. By making a gift of this property, you would also avoid the capital gains tax, and at the same time receive a charitable deduction for the full fair market value of the property. It is also possible to make a gift of your home, farm, or vacation home so that you and your beneficiaries can continue to use it for your lifetimes.
Gifts of Life Insurance
A gift of life insurance can provide a significant charitable deduction. You could purchase a new policy or donate a policy that you currently own but no longer need. To receive a deduction, designate both as the owner and beneficiary of the insurance policy. Check with your insurance agent for the details.
Wills and Bequests
When making estate plans, please consider placing us in your will. A bequest is a gift that can be made by almost everyone. It involves no immediate loss of capital or income, it allows for a significantly larger gift, and the tax benefits minimize the ultimate cost to one’s heirs.
