Legacy Gifts

If you love the eastside of Detroit and want to support Eastside Community Network's sustainable development work, please consider leaving a gift to ECN in your will as a wonderful way to ensure the longevity of your community for years to come!

Benefits of giving a planned gift

  1. Planned gifts help ensure the future health of an organization near and dear to your heart.
  2. Planned gifts offer you the opportunity to support ECN in a more substantial way, perhaps, than you were able to during your lifetime.
  3. Planned gifts offer substantial tax savings especially on appreciated properties and securities. A planned gift can reduce income tax and avoid capital gains tax. 
  4. Probate is an expensive and arduous process: giving a planned gift allows part of your estate to avoid probate.

There are planned giving options for everyone! Contact your broker, accountant or attorney to learn more about the best option for your Legacy Gift.
