A Lasting Gift by Christie Raymo, Director, Major Gifts and Planned GivingFebruary 15, 2011

I'm very excited to share with everyone the news of a real estate gift Hillside recently received from two siblings who have been generous donors. When their father's house was left to them through his estate plans they had decided to donate the house to Hillside. Not only does this gift benefit them with an immediate charitable tax deduction and removal of the asset from their taxable estate, but it will have an everlasting impact on the children and families served by Hillside.
In 2009 the family established a special fund at Hillside, meant to last in perpetuity, to help support the basic preparatory skills Hillside's children and youth need to be successful within their community. When the siblings donated the house, they asked that once the sale of the house is complete, the sale value be directed to enhance their family's fund. This fund will provide our children with opportunities such as scholarships for continued education, vocational or job readiness training, or literacy and special education support services. We are grateful for the family's foresight and the children's thoughtfulness to continue contributing to the fund in order to positively impact even more children in need for generations to come.
