Planned Giving

Leave a Legacy of Friendship

One of the most impactful ways you can demonstrate your commitment to Little Brothers – Friends of the Elderly is by setting up an estate gift.

Your will is more than a legal document. It helps ensure the continuation of values that are important to you. By supporting LBFE through your estate, you can ensure that LBFE can provide essential services for elders for years to come.

A well-prepared estate gift keeps you in control. You decide how your assets will be distributed, so addition to making a difference for elders, your estate plan can ensure that your assets are kept available for you and your family’s needs, and that funds are optimized to minimize taxes and produce additional income.

With your vision and generosity, the most isolated and vulnerable elders will always have a friend through LBFE.
