We need and appreciate your help on behalf of Individuals with Intellectual Disability and Autism!

Friendship Community exists because the Individuals we serve need assistance.
You will make a difference in the lives of Individuals like these Heart Artists and others, by enabling us to provide excellent care for the physical, emotional and spiritual well-being for those we serve.
We always welcome large contributions, but even the smallest gift helps.
When you give, you truly do "Impact the World with Capabilities!"

Planned
Giving

Overview

At Friendship Community, your giving is vital to the success of our mission. In addition to direct giving, you can support us through planned giving.

Friendship Community has partnered with Everence* to provide charitable services to help you explore a variety of planned giving options. Through gift planning, you can provide future support for Friendship Community, while also giving you and your loved ones financial flexibility, potential tax benefits and even income for life.

For more information, contact the Development Team at development@friendshipcommunity.net or call 717.656.2466. You also may contact Nikki Shingle at nikki.shingle@everence.com or 717.653.6662.

*Everence charitable services are administered by Mennonite Foundation (an affiliate of Everence) and Everence Trust Company.

Bequests
  • Through a bequest plan, you can designate Friendship Community as the beneficiary of assets by will, trust or other instrument.
Charitable Gift Annuities
  • A gift annuity is a great way to help Friendship Community while also securing your future, with guaranteed payments for life. Gift annuity payments are dependent on the financial ability of the issuing entity to pay.
Charitable Remainder Trusts
  • A charitable remainder trust is an ideal way to turn your assets (like real estate and securities) into a charitable gift without losing much of your capital gains to taxes – and support Friendship Community at the same time.
Gift of Life Insurance
  • Life insurance is a practical and affordable way to donate more than you may have thought possible.
IRAs and Tax Deferred Accounts
  • If you have a tax-deferred account, such as a traditional IRA (individual retirement account), you can donate it to charity upon your death and help your estate avoid paying substantial taxes that may be due.
Farm Commodities
  • Farmers can donate commodities like grain or livestock instead of cash to Friendship Community, while also reducing taxes.
Gifts of Stock
  • You can turn your investments into cash without losing a large portion of your capital gains to taxes by donating all or a portion of your stock to Friendship Community.
Gifts of Real Estate
  • Giving a charitable gift of real estate is an option for owners of farmland, commercial or residential rental property, or vacant investment land.
