GIVE NOW


Each of us has the ability to make a difference in the lives of those who are less fortunate. Your one-time gift provides immediate shelter and care for at-risk youth working toward a new life. Since 1988, Covenant House Alaska has served over 25,000 young Alaskans experiencing homelessness, abuse or trafficking. Please save a life and give now.

GIVE LATER


You can leave a lasting legacy.

Alaskan youth become homeless due to a range of challenges – domestic violence, abuse, exposure to drugs and other challenging circumstances. As long as our community faces these challenges, vulnerable youth will continue to experience homelessness. It is Covenant House Alaska’s mission to provide immediate care and lasting support so that their experience of homelessness is brief and non-repeating.  

You can have a lasting impact on the lives of young people for generations to come by making a commitment to support Covenant House Alaska in your estate. We intend on being here for future youth who experience homelessness, and you can be there too.

No matter where you are in your estate planning, and no matter what your financial situation may be, there is a way to make an estate commitment that suits you. You can make a planned gift for later, or a current estate gift:

Planned Gifts:

  • Bequest ­– This is the simplest way to remember Alaska’s homeless youth in your estate. You can designate an amount or percentage of your estate to Covenant House Alaska. You can do this without affecting your estate’s liquidity or assets during your lifetime.
  • Beneficiary Designation – Another simple option is to name Covenant House Alaska as a beneficiary of your retirement account, insurance policy, bank account or donor-advised fund.

Current Estate Gifts:

  • Charitable Gift Annuity – This is a transfer of assets to Covenant House Alaska, often in the form of cash or stocks. A Covenant House charitable gift annuity may also provide you with tax savings, immediate income, and ensure youth experiencing homelessness have a chance at a better life.
  • Charitable Gift Annuity – This is a transfer of assets to Covenant House Alaska, often in the form of cash or stocks. A Covenant House charitable gift annuity may also provide you with tax savings, immediate income, and ensure youth experiencing homelessness have a chance at a better life.

We would welcome the opportunity to discuss a lasting gift with you.  Please contact Greg Gallagher at ggallagher@covenanthouseak.org or call 907-339-4401.
