Planned Giving

Hospitality House strives to bring homeless people in Nevada County into a circle of community caring that offers shelter, sustenance, medical care, advocacy, opportunity, dignity, and hope as we assist them in transitioning from homelessness to housing.

This mission is made possible because of caring individuals like you, and a planned gift allows you to pursue your charitable and financial goals now and in the future, creating a legacy of lasting impact. You can help expand Hospitality House’s reach and services, and ensure its longevity through planned giving. When you invest in Hospitality House, you invite in the community you love most.

I made the decision to include Hospitality House in my will because I want their good work to always live on and help people in need, even after I’m gone. I encourage others to think about the future of our community—it could be your family they end up helping.

Planned Giving Options Made Easy


We invite you to continue your support of Hospitality House with a charitable bequest in your will or living trust. Giving through your will helps Hospitality House build its endowment as a permanent funding source. This endowment allows the shelter to continue to provide services for people who need help getting back on their feet. Learn about the various ways to make a bequest.


Naming Hospitality House as a sole or partial beneficiary of your retirement plan (401k, IRA etc.) can be an important tax reduction strategy that likewise greatly will benefit your community.

Real Estate & Personal Property

Donating real estate can be an attractive strategy for benefiting Hospitality House while disposing of property in a tax-efficient manner.


Donating highly appreciated stock is one of the most tax-efficient ways to give. You receive a deduction equal to the fair market value of the stock at the time of the transfer (its increased value), and never pay capital gains tax on the appreciated value of the stock.

Life Income Gift

A life income gift can provide you with income and leaves a gift for charity in the future. Creating a Charitable Remainder Trust, or other life income gift is a great way to support Hospitality House while also taking care of yourself or your loved ones.

Life Insurance

Did you know in most cases you can name Hospitality House as a partial or sole beneficiary of your life insurance policy? Or you may be able to gift the policy itself. Consider creating a new policy or donate a paid up policy whose coverage you no longer need.
