Legacy Giving

You do not need to be wealthy in order to make a meaningful planned gift. Most people have the immediate capacity to create a legacy gift.

Many deferred giving options allow you to purposefully support the future needs and vitality of Blackburn Family Association with little or no impact on your current income. Some planned gifts can even provide additional income.

Blackburn Family Association works with  Friends Fiduciary Corporation to facilitate planned gifts.
