The greatest benefit lies in knowing you are providing for the future of Woods and your loved ones.
Gifts to Woods Services are essential because, like most non-profit schools or residential programs, tuition and fees do not cover the entire cost of the services provided. Closing this financial gap depends largely on philanthropic support so that we can continue to provide highly individualized programs and state-of-the-art care. We steward your gift so you can be assured it will be used as you requested.
Planned Giving allows you to express your personal values by integrating your charitable, family and financial goals. Making a planned charitable gift usually requires the assistance of the Woods Services’ Development staff and/or a knowledgeable advisor, such as an attorney, financial planner or Certified Public Accountant to help structure the gift.
Those who have included Woods in their estate planning will be recognized as a member of Woods’ Heritage Association. For more information, please contact Hilary Stephens at 215-750-4215 or at firstname.lastname@example.org.
