Giving

One time giving

No matter how small or large your gift is, every dollar makes a difference. You can dedicate your donation to our programs, new building initiatives or an area of greatest need.

Monthly giving

Monthly donations are particularly important because in these difficult economic times they help us to plan in a way no other gift does. Regular gifts give us security which is vital in providing consistency for our life-skills programs. They are the only way we can plan for the future and ensure we keep changing the lives of tenants who call Pacifica Housing home.

Legacy Giving

Leaving a legacy for generations to come.

If you could choose to leave any legacy for your community, what would that be?

By remembering Pacifica Housing Advisory Association in your will, your most generous gift will make a significant and lasting contribution to a future of safe and affordable housing in our community for generations to come. A Planned Gift can make your legacy of better lives, health and stability become a reality. Your personal legacy of caring and compassion will turn houses into homes for those who need it most. We realize that considering a planned gift is an emotional experience and we want you to feel you are making the right choice for You; a choice that fits in with Your values. We encourage you to consult with your legal or financial advisor to ensure your financial goals and requirements are considered.

 

Below are the two most common ways to remember a charity in your will:

Specific Gift

A specific gift amount is a designated cash amount or property which is distributed by the executor prior to other bequests.

 

Property such as real estate, collections and securities may be given through your estate. These must be specifically named.

Residual Gift

A residual gift is all, or a percentage, of your estate that remains after the taxes and administrative and legal expenses are paid, and your heirs have received their specific gifts or proportion. If you would like to designate your gift in a more specific way, please have your legal advisor contact us. We are more than happy to work with you and your legal advisor to ensure that the intended purpose of your gift is clearly stated in your will.

Third party fundraising
