Support What You Love Today and Tomorrow



Your support of Orchard Place doesn't have to come all at once. There are many ways to combine your generosity to help us today and provide support that will help us continue our work in the future, also known as a blended gift.
To create a blended gift, select a way to give today, such as donating cash to our annual fund; then, choose to create a deferred gift—including us in your will or trust, for example.

How It Works

Mary has supported Orchard Place for more than 20 years. She has made gifts of cash or stock each year because supporting our mission brings her immense satisfaction and allows her to model the importance of generosity to her family.

Mary also wants to support our future efforts, so her financial advisor suggests that she include a gift to Orchard Place in her will.

Mary adds a $125,000 gift to her will that will be directed to our endowment fund. We only use a portion of the endowment each year to support our services and programs, and the remainder is reinvested, which allows it to grow and helps extend Mary's support indefinitely.
Thanks to Mary's careful planning, the programs and goals most important to her will thrive during and after her lifetime.
