Legacy Giving

Legacy Giving

Legacy giving is one of the best ways to retain control of your wealth during your lifetime, to provide for your loved ones, and to limit potential estate taxes.

And when you entrust a portion of your life’s work to Helping Up Mission, you’re investing in a proven recovery program — one endorsed by city leaders, including those from Johns Hopkins. You also:

  • Show mercy to women and men from your community fighting to overcome addiction and homelessness.
  • Create a refuge of Christ-centered hope and healing in Baltimore for hard-to-reach, spiritually broken individuals.
  • Help those surviving on the welfare of others (or the state) regain employment, independence, and dignity.

In summary, you ensure that your most cherished values continue to thrive in your community and throughout the greater Baltimore area — for generations to come.

To dedicate a bequest to Helping Up Mission, please add the following language to your estate plan (or share it with your attorney):

I give to Helping Up Mission, Inc., [specific dollar amount or estate percentage] for its unrestricted use and purpose
