Planned Giving


What is Planned Giving?

A planned gift is an expression of you and your family’s values. It’s a way of saying that after your family and loved ones, these are the causes that matter most and providing for them is important for you.  A planned gift is important to The INN too. These gifts help strengthen our endowment and sustain our work with the hungry and homeless to provide hope to help them find their way home.


Why ‘After the Ball’?

“After the Ball” is a term that refers to The INN’s largest fundraising event of the year, The INNkeepers’ Ball.
Everyone needs to make a plan once the big event is complete.
