Thank you so much for your generous support!

"We have fewer and fewer places where you can go and have a sense of community and actually share physical space with people, and to grow food with each other I think is a pretty miraculous thing in terms of building connections."

Retirement funds, life insurance and bank accounts

Naming the Oxford Hills Community Gardens as a beneficiary of your retirement plan, IRA, life insurance policy or brokerage account is a generous way to make a legacy gift “outside” a will. Like a bequest, these gifts help ensure the future of our community food system work.

 

These gifts are easy to implement, and giving retirement funds is a tax-wise strategy for many donors. For retirement and life insurance accounts, request a change of beneficiary form from your plan or policy administrator. For bank or brokerage accounts, you will need to fill out the appropriate form. You will also need the following information to fully complete your beneficiary forms:
