Legacy Giving

Legacy Giving

Do you want to leave an impact on The Gathering Place (TGP) that will be felt by generations to come? Join us today in shaping the future and making the fight against poverty and homelessness part of your lasting legacy. A Legacy Gift supports TGP in continuing our work until all of our members have stability and security. It also allows you the freedom to plan now and give later, making your long-term philanthropic goals more accessible. At TGP, there are several ways to give a Legacy Gift, and our team is excited to help find the best option for you.

A gift in your will 

Naming TGP as a beneficiary in your will allows you to impact our members for generations to come. Wills help determine where your assets will go after your lifetime. You can leave a specific amount or designate a percentage of your estate. Either way, your gift will empower our continued work. 

The Gathering Place has partnered with FreeWill, an online tool that guides you through the process of creating a legally valid will. It’s easy to use, free of charge, and can be completed in 20 minutes or less. You can use this tool to start your legacy with The Gathering Place so we can continue to transform lives, for years to come. Start My Free Estate Plan

Already made a gift to The Gathering Place in your will or trust? Fill out this form so we can keep our records up to date and thank you for your contributions!

A gift from your trust

Creating a trust allows you to transfer the ownership of your assets directly to TGP. There are two different kinds of trusts. A revocable trust allows you to make an immediate contribution during your lifetime and allows you to change your mind at any point if circumstances change. An irrevocable trust allows you to transfer ownership of your assets permanently. 

Sample trust language

“I give, devise, and bequeath the sum of $[ ] to The Gathering Place, a nonprofit corporation located at 1535 High Street, Denver, CO 80218 and Federal Tax ID # 84-1021059, for its unrestricted use and purpose.”

Beneficiary designation

Your retirement plans, financial accounts, annuities, and life insurance policies can all help ensure members of our community have access to stability and security.

Did you know that there are additional assets not covered in a standard will or trust? If you have an IRA, 401(k), life insurance policy, or any additional accounts, these are called “non-probate assets,” and they need to be planned for separately. Using this free online tool, you can log all of your assets, name The Gathering Place as a beneficiary to help ensure members of our community have access to stability and security, and receive printable instructions on how to set each one up with your broker. Plan your beneficiaries today.

Non-cash assets

Donating non-cash assets like real estate or personal property can provide significant tax benefits while advancing our mission. 

Qualified charitable distributions

If you’re 72 or older, you can give up to $100,000 per year from your IRA, allowing you to exclude the amount of our RMD from your income.
