Bequests & Planned Gifts

A bequest is a gift conveyed by your Will that names The Toledo Society for the Blind dba The Sight Center of Northwest Ohio as a recipient of part of your estate. You can make The Sight Center a primary beneficiary or a contingent beneficiary in case other family members predecease you. Many people have already put The Sight Center in their Wills, some of which have been realized. If you already have a Will and would like to add The Sight Center as a beneficiary please note that our legal name for purposes of your will is The Toledo Society for the Blind. We would be pleased to assist you in the phrasing of any proposed form of bequest to the agency. Please know that in addition to making a significant gift to The Sight Center, a key benefit to you is that such a gift is tax-deductible to the full extent of the law.

Other forms of Planned Gifts

While putting The Sight Center in your will now is an easy way to make a lasting gift, some other forms of planned giving may better suit your needs or tax situation. These forms may include but are not limited to the following:

  • Gifts of Insurance
  • Gifts of Marketable Securities
  • Gifts of a Charitable Remainder Trust
