Make a Planned Gift

Build a Legacy, Sustain a Movement

Astraea connects communities across geography, gender, race, identity, and generations to create the world as we know it can be. And as we engage in the work, we know we are also building our legacy - one that needs thoughtful planning and resources to ensure its sustainability.

The We Will Giving Circle celebrates those who have made planned gifts to Astraea Foundation through bequests, life income gifts, insurance policies, and other estate planning vehicles. It provides a way for us to recognize members of the Astraea community who have designated us as a beneficiary of their estate during their lifetime and to involve them more intimately in the Foundation's work.

To designate Astraea as a beneficiary in your estate, please contact Graham Bridgeman, Development Officer, at or at 212-529-5624.

Learn More About Planned Giving

There are many ways of making a planned gift to Astraea. Each option is expressive of a donor's particular interests and each has a distinct tax advantage. Moreover, a variety of assets may be appropriate for charitable gift purposes. 

In 2015, Astraea partnered with Penn Mutual to develop a one-hour webinar exploring the basics of developing a planned giving strategy, and this unique tool can have a profound impact on the people and organizations you value most.
