Planned Giving – Gifts Anyone Can Afford

Making a gift today from your assets or including a future contribution through your estate will help change the lives of the children and youth we serve as well as offer benefits to you and your family. A planned gift is any gift that requires careful thought and planning before it is actually given to a charitable organization be it a cash gift or establishing a charitable remainder trust.  

Did you know there are ways to support Eliada that don’t affect your current lifestyle or your family’s financial security?

  • You can make a gift that costs you nothing during your lifetime.
  • You can make a gift that leaves your cash flow and current financial planning unchanged.
  • You don’t have to use cash to make your gift.  You can “buy low and give high” by making your gift with appreciated securities instead.
  • You can gift an asset you no longer need or want.

Explore our planned giving page and learn about the many ways you can use your assets to make a gift that reflects what’s important to you as well as meet your personal and financial objectives. 

If you have any questions about the best way for you to benefit from a current or deferred planned gift, please contact Julie Heinitsh at 828-254-5356, ext. 308, or .

Donate your Vehicle

Your previously-owned car or truck can be the route to independence for a young person who has spent their life in foster care, but is getting ready to go out on their own.  If you would like to donate your vehicle to Eliada for an older student to drive, please email Tami Ruckman, Director of Development, at truckman@eliada.org, or call her at (828) 254-5356, ext. 306.
