Give Hope

Planned Giving

There is no end to homelessness in sight. And, unfortunately, the fastest growing segment in the homeless population is women with children.

Your estate planning professionals can advise you how to use assets you already have, such as a will, a life insurance policy, or a retirement plan--or how to implement new strategies--to help First Light provide homeless families with encouragement, safety and hope.

You can help ensure that First Light will be here to help future generations. Consider a gift to the Bill and Weesa Matthews Endowment Fund, which was established in 2006 so First Light will always help the most vulnerable overcome the tragedy of homelessness. It is as simple as sending a check to First Light indicating your gift is “for the endowment fund.”

For more information, or to let us know that you have included First Light in your will or estate planning, contact Ruth Crosby, Executive Director, at
