Endowment

Gifts to The Hope House of St. Croix Valley Endowment Fund are invested with The Saint Paul Foundation. The original gift will never be spent, but the income from the investments can provide a source of funding for Hope House for many years to come.

By remembering Hope House in your estate plan, you help to ensure that this resource will continue to serve future generations. Some choose to give cash, appreciated securities or other assets. Others will designate Hope House of St. Croix Valley as a beneficiary of:

  • A will or revocable living trust
  • A charitable remainder trust
  • A savings account or certificate of deposit
  • A 401K, IRA, or other qualified plan
  • A life insurance policy
  • A charitable lead trust
  • A charitable gift annuity

Gifts for endowment in any amount are received with appreciation. Those who establish Named Endowments, make outright gifts of $5,000 or more for endowment, or inform Hope House in writing of estate gifts for endowment will be recognized as members of The Legacy Society.
