Planned or Estate Giving

What is a Planned Gift?
A Planned Gift is any donation made as part of an individual’s overall financial and/or estate planning. Planned Giving allows you to meet your personal, financial, and philanthropic goals in tax-efficient, estate-friendly ways. Wherever you are in your career and your life, there is a Planned Giving option for you!

When you make a gift to the HNBA VIA Legacy Fund you become an integral partner in the mission of our organization. You can make a gift in your will, trust, or another account that becomes your personal legacy. A gift as part of your estate planning will ensure that your critical support will continue to help future Hispanic legal professionals and advance the HNBA important work and mission.
