The Importance of Planning a Gift

Donors are the guardians of Ashokan’s future.​ Your mindful decision to create a legacy will ensure that the magic of the Ashokan Center continues beyond our time and benefits those who walk after us.

Planned gifts allow you to pass along the values that have guided your life. Gifts may be made through your estate–either in your will or by designating the Ashokan Center as the beneficiary of an account. You retain control of your assets during your lifetime, allowing you flexibility if your needs should change.

Learn how to get started with our short guide “3 Easy Steps to Plan a Gift.” We’re happy to help every step of the way. If you would like to contribute to the future of the Ashokan Center, please feel free to contact us.

To ensure that your gift is directed properly, please always use the name “Ashokan Center, Inc.” on any documents. The Center’s EIN is 26-0194793.
