Planned Giving

What will your legacy be?  Would you like to join our Legacy Circle and make a gift that continues beyond your lifetime?

The Legacy Circle honors those who remember the families of our fallen first responders by including our organization in their will or estate planning.  Legacy gifts help ensure we can continue to support our families for many decades to come.  These gifts are important and valuable investments in the future of our families.

If you have already made a gift to our organization in your will or estate plan, we would like to hear from you and express our gratitude by including you in The Legacy Circle.  There are no gift minimums or additional commitments for membership in The Legacy Circle.  We simply would like to recognize your generous intentions and invite you to participate in upcoming events!
