Planned Giving & Bequests

Planned gifts are utilized by many people to make a real difference to HOBY while leaving a lasting legacy. Planned gifts require some assistance from your professional financial advisor. Unlike cash donations, they typically come from assets in your estate rather than disposable income, and they come to fruition upon your death. Planned gifts and bequests allow HOBY community members to support our mission while realizing financial and tax benefits of their gifts. With thoughtful planning, donors can meet their personal financial goals while making a difference for youth leaders.

Please consult your professional financial advisor to learn how to support HOBY’s mission with a planned gift, or contact Emily Lewis, Chief of Recruitment and Promotion, at for more information.
