Every day, generous givers like yourself support the ministry of ECHO with their time, money and talents. We are so thankful for you! 

Through Planned Giving, donors can enjoy specific tax advantages, often allowing them to make larger gifts than they may have thought possible. Planned gifts to ECHO provide long-term financial stability to our mission, creating a wonderful legacy for you while ensuring that small-scale farmers continue to benefit: reducing hunger, improving their resiliency, and ultimately, improving their lives for generations to come.

The Promise of Your Planned Gifts

Planned gifts demonstrate your intent to provide for the future of ECHO while meeting your current personal, family, and financial needs. We are available to discuss your personal financial situation in confidence, answer questions you or your financial advisors may have, provide more in-depth information about the organization, and offer other related assistance. Through ECHO's partnership with the National Christian Foundation, you can benefit from diverse giving resources as we better serve your needs.

The Legacy Society

The purpose of the Legacy Society is to honor the gifts and legacies of our family and friends with appropriate displays of gratitude and stewardship for their charitable plans that provide for ECHO’s mission. 

Your charitable planning may have already qualified you to be a member. We would be grateful to hear from you, or work collaboratively, and in confidence with you and your advisors toward making such a gift possible, appropriately recorded by your wishes and beneficial both for you and ECHO.

Through Planned Giving, almost everyone can give a gift to their favorite charity. Even if you initially think that you cannot afford to make such a gift, many of these gifts may be made today or in the future while still preserving your financial security.
