In 1968 three courageous women formed the Home of Hope so adults with developmental disabilities would always have a place, not only to exist but to really live. The hearts of Laura Neely, Jane Hartley, and Ruth Smith still live in this work every day. But will the Home be here tomorrow? Ten years from now? Twenty?
What is the Key to Hope Society?
• The Key to Hope Society was established to honor those who have named Home of Hope, Inc. or the Key to Hope Foundation in Vinita, Oklahoma as a beneficiary in their will or trust, retirement account, charitable gift annuity, charitable trust, or life insurance policy, or have established lasting support for Home of Hope through the establishment of an endowment fund.
• Membership involves no dues, obligations, or solicitations, but allows us to thank Society members during their lifetimes and also allows their gifts to inspire generosity in others.
What can your gift provide for you?
This giving opportunity can provide you with the opportunity to take care of your family needs, your financial needs, and reveal opportunities for charitable giving. Several advantages may be:
Reducing estate taxes
Providing income for life
Allowing you to make a much larger gift than you thought possible (without taking away from family or financial needs)
A potential current income tax deduction
Reduction or avoidance of capital gains taxes
The continued support of the vital work of Home of Hope
What will your legacy be?
Ultimately, it is what we do with what we have in life, and what we choose to leave behind, that will determine how we are remembered – our legacy. Our gifts to provide for men and women who will continue to face intellectual and developmental challenges long after we are gone will be for them the Key to Hope.
If you would like assistance in determining the kind of legacy gift best suited for your needs, or to learn more about planning your estate with no obligation to include Home of Hope as a beneficiary, please contact our planned giving specialist Chris Miller (918) 491-0079.
