Planned Giving

Leave a legacy through the Cornucopia Society
Chances are you already donate a generous portion of your income to various non-profit organizations and we hope Open Hand is one of them. However, have you considered including Open Hand in your estate planning so that we can continue nourishing generations of Goergians to come?

By leaving a legacy gift to Open Hand, you will receive the satisfaction of supporting a cause that you care deeply about, while providing a solid foundation from which Open Hand can continue to provide Food as Medicine to the most vulnerable in our community.

Open Hand’s planned giving program encourages people from all walks of life to make gifts from their estates to Open Hand. Whether your gift is a bequest, charitable remainder trust, charitable lead trust, retirement plan or a life insurance policy, Open Hand has professional estate planning consultants that can help you structure your planned gifts to provide the maximum investment/estate planning benefits to you and your family.

The Cornucopia Society was established to honor those donors who have designated Open Hand as a beneficiary of a planned gift. In appreciation of a planned gift, your name will appear prominently on the Open Hand donor wall in the Hall of Friends.
