If you’re going to live, leave a legacy. Make a mark on the world that can’t be erased. - Maya Angelou

Your legacy gift to The Sophia Way will have a lasting impact for women to have a place to call home.  Give women experiencing homelessness a better future through your bequests, retirement accounts (IRA, 401K), real estate, life insurance, trusts and stocks.

It is a powerful way to ensure your commitment lives on in a meaningful manner and supports women in our community in the future. Your bequests can also reduce federal estate taxes for heirs.

Deductions are not limited to cash — they can include assets such as real estate, IRAs, and stocks. Other planned gifts, such as charitable remainder trusts, are also granted tax-exempt status.

“We were drawn to The Sophia Way because of it provides services and resources to women. Our attachment deepened as we started volunteering, connecting with women, and hearing their stories.

Within our family, we have experience with  homelessness and understand their pain. We have included The Sophia Way as a beneficiary in our will because we believe it is the best way to ensure that our legacy will support the women served by the organization for years to come.”
