Planned Giving

For most of us, our charitable giving helps us answer significant questions such as “Who am I?” and “What are my values?” Our giving might be something learned from our parents, based in faith, or driven by a life-changing event.  As a result, leaving a legacy is much more than a financial aspiration—it represents a chance to pass along our values.

Planned or legacy giving is an increasingly popular way for individuals of all financial circumstances to make charitable gifts, enabling a donor to arrange charitable contributions to benefit a favorite organization in ways that maximize his or her personal objectives.   In addition to personal satisfaction, such gifts offer major planning opportunities to minimize federal and state taxes, increasing the possibilities for effective distribution of assets.

Special Olympics Ohio offers a variety of arrangements to ensure a gift will be put to the best possible use and fit the donor’s financial needs and objectives. Some of the most popular gifts include naming SOOH as a beneficiary in a will, making SOOH the owner and beneficiary of a life insurance policy, or making a gift to SOOH of tangible personal property or real estate.

By establishing a planned or legacy gift, you will ensure that Special Olympics Ohio’s work of empowering individuals with intellectual disabilities to become physically fit, productive and respected members of society through sports training and competition continues well into the future.
