Planned Giving

Planned Giving

Planned Giving is a way to support Meals on Wheels of Greater Lynchburg through your estate plan or will. Your thoughtful foresight, generosity, and commitment will ensure the long term success of our program.

Planned gifts can be made to Meals on Wheels in multiple ways, and they are best made with the counsel of a financial or legal advisor. Your financial planner can also direct you in the benefits of an IRA rollover or charitable distribution, and other types of charitable gifting.

Financial benefits of planned gifts may include a federal income tax charitable deduction, and/or an estate tax deduction. Changes to the Tax Code may impact the tax benefit of charitable donations.

It’s easy to make a gift of stock to Meals of Greater Lynchburg.  If you have any questions, please call our office for support. 434-847-0796.

The Steward’s Society was created so donors can provide a special gift that will feed our homebound neighbors in perpetuity.  A donation in the amount of $26,000 will provide meals ‘forever’ for one person in our community.

Participation in the Steward’s Society is simple and flexible:

  • Donate directly. A gift of $26,000 will feed one of our neighbors forever!
  • Give a lump sum, or pledge over 3 years.
  • Establish a gift in your estate plans
  • Create a Charitable Gift Annuity
