One way to donate to Bridgehaven is by including planned giving in your will or estate plan. Planned giving allows you to designate a donation to be given at a later date or upon your death. This is a way to ensure that your assets benefit your family and ministries like Bridgehaven, instead of being distributed by state law.
Bridgehaven can accept planned gifts of:
- Cash, check, or credit cards
- Charitable lead trusts
- Charitable gift annuities, charitable remainder trusts
- Life insurance policies and proceeds
- Real estate and other forms of personal property
- Stock and other business interests

Additionally, Endow Iowa Donors who give to a permanently endowed fund at a qualified community foundation are eligible to receive a 25 percent state tax credit for their gifts.
To learn how to receive the tax credit or to include Bridgehaven in your will or estate planning please contact Kylee Pusteoska, Director of Development, at 319-364-8967 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
