In the St. Louis area alone, there are hundreds of people with developmental disabilities waiting to leave institutions, substandard housing, nursing homes, or the home of an aging parent – and move into an accessible home of their own. Your support makes that possible.
Please consider joining The Rainbow Legacy to ensure Rainbow Village’s mission of providing long-term safe, comfortable, and affordable homes for people with developmental disabilities continues.
There are many ways to make a gift that can pay off in big benefits to you, your family, and Rainbow Village. Below are four generally accepted ways to make a bequest.
Options include cash or stock bequest, residuary, restricted, or honorary/memorial bequests in your will.
Real Estate Gift
Avoid capital gains tax on the sale of a home or other real estate by donating real estate to Rainbow Village.
Charitable Gift Annuity
Supplemental income with fixed annual payments.
Charitable Remainder Trust
In the right circumstances, this plan can increase your income, reduce your taxes, unlock appreciated investments, rid you of investment worries, and ultimately provide very important support.
Home Sponsors are those who donate $25,000 or more to Rainbow Village. Donations from Home Sponsors are used to support a down payment on a new home for people with developmental disabilities or to renovate an existing Rainbow home. If you are interested in becoming a Home Sponsor or need more information, please contact Joanna Jones-Raymond at 314.567.1522 ext. 209 or e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org.
