  • Endowment
  • Tribute Gifts

Planned Giving
A planned gift is a smart way to provide financial support that Family Guidance Center needs to help build positive and productive lives, while you are able to maximize tax benefits. If you would like to consider a planned gift, please discuss this with a financial planner who can best assist you with estate planning.

Our endowment fund was established to help sustain future services for children and families in our community, as well as to sustain our Shelter for Battered Women. This fund provides our organization with financial stability. During times of economic uncertainty, the endowment fund can provide needed funding to keep our programs going. A gift to the endowment fund gives Family Guidance Center a savings that creates interest and continues to help the organization long after it is made. It is a wonderful option in leaving a lasting legacy to Family Guidance Center.

For more information about giving to the Endowment, please contact our agency at 828-322-1400.

Tribute Gifts

Giving a gift that will help others is a thoughtful way to honor or remember your loved ones. It's a gift that reflects your value of family and friends. Honor and Memorial Gifts will provide needed services to help build positive and productive lives.

For more information, please contact our office at 828-322-1400.
