Leave a Legacy

Planned gifts, such as bequests or charitable trusts, can be an advantageous way to provide for a future gift to charity. Take care of yourself and take care of SAY’s kids long into the future.

What is “Planned Giving?”

  • Provide for you or your loved ones

  • Enable you to leave a legacy for Sonoma County’s youth
