This provides a way for you to make a gift to VGL and at the same time receive favorable tax considerations. VGL has received many of its most significant commitments of support in the form of planned gifts, and we remain deeply grateful to our friends who provide for our organization’s future in this way. By considering a planned giving option, you may be able to make a larger gift than you thought | a gift that also benefits you.

  •  Trusts 
  • Life Insurance Policies | Tribute and Memorial Donations

There is currently one Memorial Fund that has been established in honor of Dr. Sue and Grover Dear to help create the VanGarden.

  • We welcome any others including the initiation of several endowment funds such as:
    – Resident Scholarship
    – Maintenance
    – Future Capital
    You can give to these or help to initiate another.
Gift of Stock

A charitable gift of stocks provides an opportunity for tax savings while supporting VGL.  A gift of stock owned for more than one year entitles you to a charitable deduction for the full market value at the time the gift is made. If the stock has appreciated, you also avoid a capital gains tax on the appreciation in value.

Naming Opportunities

We have a multitude of gift amounts that will allow a Name to be put on something in honor of an individual, a family or a company in our beautiful intentional community! We have a wonderful Capital Campaign Packet that we would love the opportunity to share with you about one of these opportunities! Please email us at ddear@vanguardlanding.org or complete the Contact Us form on this website to be contacted about this! First come first served on choosing from the Naming Opportunities!


 We welcome the opportunity to work with any group or business to help us raise funds and awareness of this wonderful project!
