What is a Legacy Gift?

Planned giving, or a legacy gift, allows you to make a donation to Central Oklahoma Habitat for Humanity that is mutually beneficial. It’s a gift that ensures good stewardship of your assets by increasing benefits for yourself and for your family members. It’s a gift that will help hundreds of your fellow Oklahoman’s thrive by living self-reliant and sustainable lives with the aid of truly affordable housing.


Legacy gifts help improve the lives of people in need for many years to come and ensure the future of Central Oklahoma Habitat for Humanity’s efforts to bring affordable housing for Oklahomans.


Choosing the right planned gift depends on your personal circumstances and financial goals. The donation of a legacy gift can fulfill your philanthropic wishes and cost nothing during your lifetime. Best of all you and your loved ones benefit from present-day gift planning. There are significant tax benefits, but more than that you can support the future of causes that are close to your heart today. Your support through a planned gift will transform the lives of people who struggle with affordable housing options and those who simply ask for a hand up and not a hand out.


When you make a legacy gift, you are demonstrating your commitment to Central Oklahoma Habitat for Humanity’s mission and helping to make lives better for people with housing needs in Oklahoma. Central Oklahoma Habitat for Humanity is dedicated to working with donors who are considering or who have made plans to leave a gift in their will, trust, or by beneficiary designation. Your gift can be made in honor or memory of someone and deepens your commitment to improving the lives of those with housing needs now and in the future.


Please consult with your legal and financial advisers when considering a planned gift or legacy gift. To further discuss legacy gifts with a Central Oklahoma Habitat for Humanity representative, contact Christi Roney at (405) 232-4828 or via email at christi.roney@cohfh.org.
