Planned Gifts and Bequests
Make a difference today and tomorrow
Sunnyvale Community Services (SCS) helps families and individuals rebuild their lives when they are at risk of homelessness or hunger. Your legacy gift will be a stepping stone to a more secure future for SCS so we can create more secure futures for the people we serve.
Leaving money to SCS from an IRA, 401(k), or 403(b) can be as simple as filling out a beneficiary form. Links to online forms for several financial institutions are provided below; check with your plan administrator if your institution is not on the list.
Wills & Trusts
If you would like to make SCS a beneficiary of your will or trust, please download our Sample Bequest Language document to help you specify your intentions as you work with an attorney to complete your documents.
There are multiple ways to transfer funds to SCS through a life-insurance policy, including naming SCS as a beneficiary, adding a charitable gift rider, and donating the policy. Please contact your insurance broker to explore these options.
