Planned Giving

Planned Giving and Estate Planning

Thank you for your interest in making a planned gift to Door of Hope. By making a planned gift you can leave a legacy of hope for the future that impacts the lives of families and children experiencing homelessness.

“Each of you should us whatever gift you have received to serve others,
as faithful stewards of God’s grace in its various forms.”
– 1 Peter 4:10


Being a good steward of our resources means we plan for the future. Did you know that 70% of Americans do not have a will or estate plan? Over 7500 members of families are homeless in Los Angeles, over 4400 of those are children. You can make a lasting impact on future generations by making a planned gift to continue Door of Hope’s mission to equip homeless families and children to rebuild their lives.


No! It is a common misconception that you have to wealthy to make a planned gift. A planned gift means that you are intentionally making a decision to support Door of Hope in the future by designating us in you will or trust, no matter how small or large the gift.
