An effective estate plan reflects your life & values. A planned gift is a donation from your estate used to support a non-profit organization that supports your philanthropic goals. A planned gift to Elk Hill sustains a life-long connection to an institution that has played an important role in your philanthropic goals and the legacy you have created. By including Elk Hill in your plans you can reduce tax liability on your estate and at the same time contribute to the financial strength and stability to an organization that has filled a vital role for 1,000’s of Virginia’s youth and families wellbeing.
