A Legacy of
Lasting Impact

For all members of the Shepherd family, there are many ways to make a long-term impact on our work for generations to come. The life-restoring programs you commit to now through legacy gifting may not even exist yet.

Customize Your Legacy

We can work with you or your professional advisors to design a giving plan that’s right for you and your giving goals. For more information, email or call Alan Hunn at [email protected] or 404-350-7778.

Will Bequests

Making a bequest in your will is the easiest way to leave a legacy for Shepherd Center’s future.

  • Specific bequest: Specify a dollar amount or percentage in your will.
  • Residual bequest: A remainder or percentage of your estate paid after your heirs are taken care of.
  • Contingency bequest: A specific amount or percentage can be left in the event of your heir’s passing.

Consider making Shepherd Center a beneficiary of a percentage of your retirement plan, such as an IRA, 401k or 403b account.
