Planned Giving

A planned gift is a simple, effective way to support the Valentine well into the future. Bequests can serve the institution in a variety of ways, based on your wishes, and are made with the assistance of an attorney.  Upon setting up a bequest, please notify our Development Office, so that we may properly credit you in our system and more accurately plan for the institution’s future.

If you already have made a planned gift, we thank you for including the Valentine in your long term plans. Our future is bright because of you.
