Planned and Estate Giving

You can support the Nashua Senior Activity Center (NSAC) in a variety of ways, including through your estate. Including the Senior Activity Center in your estate plan will not only assist you in reaching and achieving your own philanthropic and charitable giving goals, but it will also allow NSAC to continue its mission to promote healthy aging, independence and the well-being of older adults through health, wellness, educational, cultural, and recreational programs and services.

There are many charitable planned giving options available to you. For example, you can make a planned gift to NSAC by naming Nashua Senior Activity Center as a beneficiary of your last will and testament, life insurance policy or retirement plan.

You can also name NSAC as a beneficiary of a charitable trust. Your attorney or financial advisor can advise you of the various types of charitable trusts and assist you in establishing a trust that is tailored to your personal needs.

Some of the above-mentioned planned giving strategies may have a greater tax benefit to you than others, so please consult with your attorney or financial advisor on which strategy would work best for you.

Below please find examples of specific language that you may use to name Nashua Senior Activity Center as a beneficiary of your will, trust, life insurance policy, retirement assets, or other contractual gift. If you, your attorney or financial adviser has any questions, please do not hesitate to contact our Planned Giving Coordinator via our Contact page.
