Memorial and Tribute Gifts
Give in Honor
When you want to give a gift to someone who doesn’t need anything, or you want to honor someone for a special occasion, give a financial gift to the Lyngblomsten Foundation in his or her honor.
Give in Memory
The Lyngblomsten Remembrance Tree is a way to make a lasting commemoration for loved ones. Engraved leaves are available by making a gift or a compilation of remembrance gifts (such as funeral memorials) at the following levels:
- Gold Leaf $2,000 or more
- Silver Leaf $1,000 - $1,999
- Bronze Leaf $ 500 - $999
Donors and friends of Lyngblomsten can purchase leaves at the above levels. Remembrance gifts help support Lyngblomsten's overall ministry.
For more information about making a tribute gift and to request a Remembrance Fund/leaf order form, please contact the Lyngblomsten Foundation office at 651.632.5326 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
Gifts of Stock and Securities
Your gift of appreciated shares of stock given directly to the Lyngblomsten Foundation provides multiple benefits. Not only will your gift help to provide older adults with access to the opportunities, support and services they need, your gift of shares that you have held for a year or longer, will also provide a charitable tax deduction and allow you to avoid paying capital gains taxes.
Estate and Planned Giving
By including the Lyngblomsten Foundation in your estate planning, you can help ensure that older adults and their caregivers will continue to have access to the vital support and care that they need to age well.
You can designate the Lyngblomsten Foundation as a beneficiary of your will, trust, retirement plan or life insurance policy. Many such planned gifts can offer significant tax savings. In addition, some arrangements, such as charitable gift annuities, can offer you more income in your retirement years while also leaving a legacy gift that will help future generations of older adults.
The Lyngblomsten Heritage Society recognizes those who have created estate plan gifts for Lyngblomsten.
We invite you to contact us to allow us to acknowledge your generous intentions, to answer any questions you may have, or to discuss the benefits of various giving options.
