Legacy Giving

What’s Your Promise To The Future?

Leaving a gift in your will is a promise to future generations — a commitment to creating a community now and in the future that employs each person’s strengths and abilities by finding them meaningful and rewarding work. Regardless. You will enjoy peace of mind and satisfaction, knowing that the legacy you leave behind is one that puts the right people in the right positions to create a culture of caring, acceptance, and belonging for working communities.

Anthony’s Story

My name is Anthony, and I was diagnosed some decades ago with paranoid-schizophrenia. I was told that I would never return to work or school, and I should accept my early retirement. For years I did. One day, I decided I wanted something better for myself.

“I CAME TO CAUSEWAY, AND THEY MADE ME FEEL WHAT I HAD BEEN FEELING ALL ALONG: THAT THERE WAS HOPE TO GET A JOB WITH SOME SUPPORT BEHIND ME.”

With the help of Causeway and its social enterprises, I currently hold four part-time jobs. I still struggle with the effects of the medication, but, the more I work, the better I feel. I would recommend to anyone in a similar situation that it is a win-win with Causeway.”

Here is what donors Leah and Jeff had to say about making a donation through their wills:

“Leaving a gift to Causeway in our will allows us to take care of our family first, but still reduce future estate taxes and create a legacy to help those suffering from mental illness. It is important to us that we’ll be making a gift that will far exceed what we had ever thought was possible during our lifetimes.”

MAKING A DIFFERENCE

The most common way to show your support for our mission through legacy giving is leaving a bequest in your will. You don’t even have to rewrite it, just add “Causeway” as a beneficiary, which will allow your estate to receive a tax receipt for the full amount given.

No matter how you decide to leave your legacy, we recommend that you discuss your plans with your family and a financial advisor.
