Join The Legacy







The Novato Youth Center’s commitment to our mission of inspiring and preparing youth to succeed takes years of work, as we support youth in their successful transitions through elementary, middle, high school, and on to college.

You can ensure that we fulfill this commitment of sustaining our services for Novato’s youth by making an investment in our future.

Leaving a Legacy
The Legacy Society honors supporters who wish to be partners in the future of our mission by making provisions for the Novato Youth Center in their estate plans—either by will, trust, life-income gift or other planned giving arrangements.

By becoming a member of the Legacy Society, your generosity will live on to benefit future generations. Your visionary gift of helping to sustain our services will have a positive and lasting impact.

Joining the Legacy Society
Enrolling is easy. Simply advise the Novato Youth Center that a testamentary provision has been made. The size of the gift need not be disclosed. Legacy gifts can take many forms:

  • Bequests in wills or living trusts
  • Life income gifts through a charitable remainder trust, pooled income fund or gift annuity
  • Retirement plan beneficiary designation
  • Life insurance beneficiary designation or retirement assesses

Benefits of Membership
Donors who have notified us of their deferred gift arrangement will become members of our Legacy Society. This will entitle you to attend all future Legacy Society events as our guest as a thank you for your investment in our long-term success.

We understand that some people wish to remain anonymous. Unless you choose to be anonymous, we would like to list your name in our annual report and in the Legacy Society Honor Roll that will be displayed in our Center. We will also send you a Legacy Society Certificate of Enrollment, and a membership lapel pin that you can proudly wear to signal your deep and personal commitment to supporting the Novato Youth Center’s mission.
