There are various reasons people contribute to a project like this. Some have had parents or grandparents living at the former Ebenezer Home. They have appreciated the safe and homelike atmosphere provided to them.
Some are approaching a time where they themselves will be looking for a retirement residence that will provide an alternative to the home they now occupy.
Many people feel that supporting this project is one way of ensuring that the community will continue to grow and flourish.
Whatever your reason for supporting this project, it’s important to know that there are numerous ways that you might want to explore to maximize the significance of your gift.
The most common way, of course, is an outright cash gift to the project. You can maximize your support by taking advantage of the three year pledge period offered in this campaign. Pledge payment plans can be arranged to suit your individual needs.
Other types of gifts can include paid-up life insurance policies, gifts-in-kind, stocks and bond, real estate and other types of personal assets.
“This is another way of
growing our community, working together and
helping to take care
of one another.”

Planned Giving Options:
Some donors would like to support the campaign with a gift of assets that they currently still require to supplement their other income. A planned gift is one made in trust to The Gardens on Tenth where the donor still retains some or all of the benefits for a specified time.
A bequest in a will is a very popular way of showing support that will benefit the campaign at a future date.
Planned giving options are always designed for a specific person or situation and need to be developed in consultation with our campaign office. Of course, your gift should be made in consultation with your tax or legal adviser, and perhaps also family members.
