Planned Gifts and Simple Bequests

While our practitioners work hard to address the most urgent and pressing needs our communities face today, we are also working to build a future in which communities are made stronger by the constructive and compassionate engagement of difference. Building new cultures of engagement is a long-term, multi-generational effort, but an effort made easier with the security of legacy gifts. By offering a planned gift in the form of a simple bequest, you can help sustain our mission for generations to come.

Interested in making a planned gift?

A planned gift, in the form of a bequest, can be as simple as adding a provision in your will to support Essential Partners' continuing mission. To leave a provision in your will, simply share this sentence with your attorney or financial planner: 

"I bequeath $___, or ___% of my estate, to Essential Partners, Inc., headquartered at 186 Alewife Brook Parkway, suite 212, Cambridge, MA 02138."

Then simply notify us about your intention to make a bequest, and we'll work with you and your attorney or financial planner to manage the details of your gift. You can email our Development Director, call our office at 617-923-1216, or stop by in person to discuss your bequest. As in any case involving special gifts, we strongly encourage you to involve your attorney / financial planners from the start to ensure you're receiving the best financial guidance possible based on your personal circumstances. You can read more about other ways to support us here, too!

Have you already made a planned gift in support of Essential Partners? We hope you'll let us know!

Thank you! We are deeply honored to be a part of your legacy planning, and our impact for future generations is only made more profound with your support.
