General & Legacy Donations
Through your Will, you can make a significant contribution to the continuance of the programs and services at Riverdale Senior Services. Legacies received by RSS will become part of a special endowment fund and will generate additional income for use by RSS in providing services to Center members. We anticipate that such a fund will grow over the years and help insure stability for RSS in times of special financial need.
Gifts to RSS by Will are simple to make, are not subject to New York or Federal estate tax and all such gifts will, of course, receive suitable recognition. You should discuss such a gift with your attorney.
A gift in your Will, or in that of a family member, will insure a continuation of the services you and your friends receive from Riverdale Senior Services. Such a tangible expression of your thanks would mean a great deal to Riverdale Senior Services. A gift by Will serves as a living testimonial to your concern for the programs and services that Riverdale Senior Services provides for its members.
