Planned Gifts

Planned gifts play a crucial role in the continued progress and sustainability of the Institute, and make a long-lasting impact on mental health in our community. Planned gifts can be made now or deferred to a later time, and can include bequests through a will, retirement plan assets, and charitable trusts. The thoughtful process of arranging planned gifts to the Institute focuses your philanthropic goals and maximizes your tax savings and estate-planning benefits. Planned gifts are simple and affordable opportunities to make a lasting impact on mental health in the St. Louis community.

In 2002, the Institute established the Legacy Alliance to honor the inspiring generosity and vision of donors who make planned gifts. We are very grateful to the following members of the Legacy Alliance:

Howard F. Baer
Mr. & Mrs. Arnold Block
