I Give



Planned giving

Planned giving enables you to support the MHI in the long term, not to mention enjoy substantial benefits, by providing for a donation in your financial, tax or estate plan. The donation can be made during your lifetime or upon your death, and can be in the form of a bequest in your will, a life insurance policy, or publicly traded securities. By making a bequest to the MHI, your generosity will live on long after you’re gone. Find out more
