Leave a Legacy

Your legacy matters.

Even after your lifetime, you can be the peace of mind for your neighbors facing an unexpected septic tank failure, the joy for a young family embarking on their first homeownership journey, the hope for an aging neighbor in need of safety upgrades to continue living independently, and the respite for a single mom who’s finally found an affordable apartment to raise her kids.

Through a legacy gift in your Will, you’ll live on through the growth, revitalization, and beautification of your community. You’ll live on through the lives of every one of your neighbors who turns to INHS for support and finds just the help they need thanks to your lasting gift.

If you’ve already included INHS in your Will or estate plan, thank you. Please let us know so that we can properly thank you and keep you informed about our current projects and mission successes. Simply download the Gift Announcement Form on the right hand side of this page, complete it, and return it by email to kwingert@ithacanhs.org or by mail to Attn: Kayla Wingert, INHS, 115 W Clinton Street, Ithaca, NY 14850.
