Legacy Giving

Legacy and Planned Giving

Whether you know someone with developmental disabilities, have volunteered in our programs or believe strongly in supporting families with the best possible services, your connection with Friendship Home is unique and incredibly personal.

Many people like to leave a gift to charity in their will because they care about causes that are important in their lives. We’d like to let you know about ways you can honor Friendship Home by remembering us in your estate plans. You can give a gift through your will or trust or name Friendship Home as a beneficiary of other assets, such as a life insurance policy or retirement plan. These meaningful gifts cost nothing now and are the easiest way to provide ongoing support of our mission. Legacy gifts have an enduring effect because they secure Friendship Home’s mission of enriching the lives of individuals with developmental disabilities.

If you have any questions regarding making a charitable gift to Friendship Home in your will, please contact Heather Dwyer, Director of Development, at 781-659-8202, ext. 14.
