Ways to Give

LifePath has been helping elders, persons with disabilities, and their caregivers live better lives since 1974. Here are some ways you can help, too.

Annual Giving

Donors who give gifts annually are the support system for LifePath. We are so grateful when donors respond to an appeal letter or give at a time that is right for them in the year. Our most popular annual appeal is centered around the Meals on Wheels Walkathon, but we have needs across our organization. Take a look at our menu of services - most programs could accept more funding to meet the needs of people in our community.

Monthly or quarterly giving is an option at LifePath. Being able to rely on recurring support helps us to plan for months and years ahead.

Major Giving

While every dollar counts toward providing services, we invite those donors who have more access to resources to consider supporting our programs at LifePath. The impact of giving to LifePath is seen and felt right here at home.

Tribute Giving

Giving in honor of or in memory of a special person is a wonderful way to show you care. Our online giving form allows donors to name someone for whom they'd like to pay tribute. Those donating by check may simply write the tribute name in the memo line.

For those family members who have just experienced losing a loved one and wish for memorial gifts to be given to LifePath, language that may be included in an obituary is the following:

"Memorial gifts may be directed to LifePath, 101 Munson Street, Suite 201, Greenfield, MA 01301."

In some cases a particular program may be important to the family or individual, such as Meals on Wheels. Gifts of any kind may be directed to specific programs by noting it in the memo line or in the space provided on the online giving form.

Planned Giving

Planned giving allows individuals to make charitable gifts now or as stated in a will. Examples of a planned gift include:

  • a fixed sum of money or residue of an estate;
  • stock holdings;
  • specific assets; and/or
  • establishing a Charitable Gift Annuity (these vehicles provide the donor with significant lifetime income while protecting the assets of an estate)

By including LifePath in your financial planning, you can help elders throughout Franklin County and the North Quabbin region - and beyond - long into the future and enjoy financial protection for yourself and your loved ones today.

We encourage you to consult with your attorney or financial planning advisor before making any type of planned gift.
