Planned Giving


what is legacy giving?

Legacy Giving helps you donate to Morris Habitat for Humanity in a manner that is consistent with your financial ability and goals.

With careful planning, you’ll be able to establish a meaningful Legacy by providing affordable homeownership for your neighbors in need well into the future.

Morris Habitat for Humanity proudly serves families in Morris, Middlesex, and portions of Somerset and Union counties.

what legacy do you want to build?

Do you hope for a community with healthier kids, greater academics, stronger neighborhoods and affordable homeownership opportunities for families and individuals?

Your planned gift to Morris Habitat for Humanity will create a lasting impact in all of these areas, and beyond. Habitat homeowner partners are strong, stable and self- reliant, and they pass these virtues on to their children.

Today, after decades of proven success, Morris Habitat for Humanity will multiply affordable homeownership opportunities for local families in the years ahead.

Your Planned Gift can be the key that unlocks amazing potential.

ways to multiply your legacy

begin your legacy with us
To help you get started on your plans and legacy, Morris Habitat has partnered with FreeWill, an online tool that guides you through the process of creating a legally valid will or trust. It’s easy to use, accessible online and can be completed in 20 minutes. You can use this resource on its own or use it to document your wishes before finalizing your plans with an attorney.

non-probate assets
Do you have an IRA, 401(k), life-insurance policy, or any other assets not included in your will? If so, these are called non-probate assets and you must plan your beneficiaries for them separately. Use this online tool to make your plans and designate Morris Habitat as a beneficiary of one or more of these assets.
