HELP SUSTAIN THE VISION OF AMIGOS WITH A LEGACY GIFT

As one of the nation’s oldest international youth service organizations, AMIGOS has opened up the eyes of more than 28,000 young people over more than five decades. To help sustain the success of AMIGOS, a planned or deferred gift is a meaningful way to leave a legacy of support to an organization that has played an important role in your life.

You don’t need to be wealthy to make a planned gift. With thoughtful planning, you have the opportunity to make a significant gift that will benefit the future of AMIGOS and support both your personal and philanthropic objectives.

A planned gift is an investment in AMIGOS for the benefit of future generations. In addition, you have the option to designate your planned gift towards the area of greatest need, financial assistance, or program that is of interest to you.

For more information on this type of charitable giving and how it might benefit you, your loved ones, and AMIGOS, please contact Jenny Claycombe, Development Associate, at jclaycombe@amigosinternational.org.
