One sentence in your will can make a lifetime of difference.
If you are interested in leaving a bequest, please use this sample language as a framework for shaping your bequest as you work and consult with your advisors.
“I give and bequeath to XXX of (address) ( ___ percent; OR the sum of $______ from my estate; OR all the rest, residue or remainder of my estate.) This gift may be used (where needed most or for XXX program/fund support.)
We would be delighted to help you create a bequest for a purpose close to your heart. Please contact Susan Oldrid at 508-728-1843 or email@example.com so that we can discuss how your bequest has the impact you wish.
Donate Stock or Securities
If you donate appreciated stock you have owned for more than one year, you can enjoy greater tax savings from giving such property than for giving an equal amount of cash. To receive such benefits, you must transfer the securities to Youville Assisted Living Residences rather than selling them and donating the proceeds. A gift of appreciated stock may offer the chance to provide a more generous gift than an outright gift of cash and is a fantastic way to support resident care. Contact Susan Oldrid, Executive Director of Philanthropy at 508.728.1843 or firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
Honor and Memorial Giving
Tribute gifts, a special and personal way to remember or honor a loved one or employee, are always accepted and recognized with love and gratitude.
Donor Advised Fund
Giving through your donor advised fund is easy! The EIN number for Youville House is 04-3239593 and for Youville Place is 04-3297834. We’d love to say thank you for your gift, please include your contact information with your gift.
IRA Qualified Charitable Distribution
Donors aged 70 ½ and older can make a gift of all or part of their annual required minimum distribution (up to $100,000). This allows you to meet your minimum distribution requirements and reduces your income by the amount donated. This form of giving is also another way you may be able to make a greater impact on the lives of those who will benefit from your generosity!!

Gift of Real Estate
Unencumbered real estate that is readily salable in the marketplace can be a wonderful gift. Upon notification of a potential gift of real estate, we will work with you to evaluate the making/accepting of the gift and approach that are in the best interest of you and Youville Assisted Living Residences. Contact Susan Oldrid, Executive Director of Philanthropy at 508.728.1843 or email@example.com for more information.
Many employers match their employees’ charitable giving. Please ask your Human Resource department for the appropriate matching gift form to increase the impact of your contribution.
The Loyalty Society recognizes Youville’s most loyal donors – those who share their generosity for three or more consecutive years. Donors who give year after year have a substantially positive impact on our residents.
Demonstrate your personal compassion by making a gift each calendar year. Your recurring support to your favorite program, in honor of a staff member; or in memory of your loved one, helps enhance the quality of life of our residents as they navigate this later stage of their lives.
Forget Me Nots have been connected to different symbolic meanings throughout history, including loyalty, faithfulness, and hope. We can think of no better image to convey our gratitude to members of our Loyalty Society.
