Ways to Give: Planned Giving

Planned Giving Leave a Legacy of Compassion

Your most important gift for a better tomorrow

Leave a legacy that will improve the lives of people in need for many years to come. Your legacy gifts ensure the future of Seva's efforts to bring sustainable eye care services and programs to underserved and remote communities in over 20 countries.

Choosing the right planned gift depends on your personal circumstances and financial goals. The donation of a legacy gift can fulfill your philanthropic wishes and cost nothing during your lifetime. Best of all you and your loved ones benefit from present-day gift planning. There are significant tax benefits, but more than that you can support the future of causes that are close to your heart today. Your support through a planned gift will transform the lives of people who needlessly suffer from blindness, for generations to come.

Please consult with your legal and financial advisers when considering a planned gift.
