Planned Giving

Are you grateful for life - the people and things that are important to you?

Family, friends, home, education... 

Saranam restores the lives of homeless families through communities of support, basic needs for living and education.  We take nothing for granted because our families have lost nearly everything.

You can express your support and gratitude for your own life and help others get on their feet through bequests and other planned gifts to provide financial support for Saranam beyond the years of your life.

Lasting gifts, large and small gifts can be made through one's estate - perhaps larger than any gift made while living - in order to extend and enhance the ministry and outreach of Saranam.

Have you considered such a gift?

Some gifts can be made while living and some may provide income for the remainder of your life.  You may tithe your estate, give to allow for immediate expenditure of your gift, add to the Frances Thaxton Ash Endowment or choose to create a new endowment that will provide permanent financial support or for designated purposes.

A gift through a bequest might be established through a change in your will or codicil, a simple legal addendum to your last will and testament that expresses your intent without requiring more extensive changes to your will.

Please contact Sue Rzendzian or Tracy Sharp at  or by calling 505.299.6154 if you would like to discuss making a planned gift.
