Legacy Gifts Planning a Gift to Keystone Human Services
There are many ways for you to be a partner in our mission — to create opportunities for growth and meaningful life choices so that all people can be valued, contributing members of their community. Through our years of research and experience providing community-based human services, we have recognized our deep obligation to serve as a change agent and share our experience with others. It takes a strong network of human services resources to address the full weight of humanity’s most pressing issues and advance the human spirit of people across the globe. Legacy giving provides the resources necessary to sustain excellence and preserve the future of Keystone Human Services.

If you have already included Keystone Human Services in your estate plans, please let us know by calling us or filling out our estate intention form. We would like to assist you in making certain your intentions will be carried out. If you have not written a will yet, regardless of your charitable intent, please consider this for it is a gift to your loved ones.
Individual circumstances will vary — as with all tax and estate planning, please consult your attorney or estate specialist. Some of the gift arrangements are revocable and others cannot be changed once established. Some work better with cash and others with appreciated assets. There are many variations, enough so that a giving plan can be tailored to your needs, desires and capabilities. We will be glad to answer questions and offer suggestions confidentially based on your personal circumstances. Please call us or e-mail us (see contact page).
