Planned Giving

Follow us!

A little planning now can accomplish a world of good for your loved ones
and for your favorite charity.

Become a member of the Sanctuary Society.


A planned gift to ECS will provide direct support for programs that help more than 7,000 homeless and low-income people each year. It can also benefit your heirs—and yourself—as you get older.

Planned giving is not just for the wealthy, but helps all of us prepare for our retirement and the ultimate allocation of our estate.

Giving Options:

  • Designate ECS as a beneficiary of your life insurance, IRA, 401(k), or 403(b) retirement plan
  • Bequeath a gift to ECS in your will or revocable trust
  • Purchase a life-income gift through a charitable gift annuity
  • Create a charitable remainder trust

If you would like for your planned gift to benefit a particular program at ECS, please talk to us first so we can advise you how to best direct your gift. Ask about plans that can increase your income during your lifetime while bypassing taxes—and without reducing what you pass on to your family.

For more information, please contact Sarah Lehman, Director of Development at (415) 487-3300 x1241 or slehman@ecs-sf.org.
