Planned Giving: Building and Sustaining a Non-Violent Community
Your estate plan can be a powerful and meaningful tool to create lasting change in your community. By naming Raphael House of Portland in your estate plan, you help to build a sustainable community where violence is not tolerated and where families are given vital resources to achieve their goals.
Every year, 60% of the people served by Raphael House of Portland are children. Working together, we can make sure this percentage drops. Your estate gift allows us to create lasting social change through education and outreach programming in local schools and to focus on long term goals – on building a community where no child has to live in emergency shelter or fear being hurt by someone they love.
