Endowment Giving

The Best Way to Live Forever

There’s a way you can remain a permanent presence in our local community and ensure that your support for our mission lives on for generations to come: Give an endowed gift. An endowment gift to Habitat for Humanity of Lake-Sumter today provides a brighter picture for our future. When you make a donation to our endowment, you give a gift with both immediate and long-term benefits.

How Endowments Work

You give a gift to Habitat for Humanity of Lake-Sumter, which we carefully invest. You can give cash, securities or other assets to the endowment fund or give to the endowment after your lifetime by leaving Habitat of Lake-Sumter a gift in your will or using your retirement account or life insurance benefits.

Once we receive your gift, we will use a small portion of the earnings from the investment each year to support our mission or the particular program or project you’ve designated. The principal balance of your endowment fund will remain invested to ensure that it lasts forever.
