About

What is the Hope Society?

The Hope Society is a group of committed donors who recognize the wisdom of looking ahead and want to ensure that Convoy of Hope’s mission will be sustained in the future. Members of the Hope Society do this by including Convoy of Hope in their estate plans as the beneficiary of a bequest or other planned gift that can provide realized financial support in the future. 

I know Convoy of Hope will continue to do good in this world, and being part of that makes me feel like I am giving back.

How It Works

Your planned gift leaves a legacy of compassion.

What are planned gifts?

Planned gifts include bequests, life insurance proceeds, and retirement assets which are conveyed to Convoy of Hope at the time a donor’s estate is settled. Life income gifts — such as a charitable gift annuity, or charitable remainder trust — are special gift vehicles that provide donors with lifetime payments as well as potential tax advantages.

Convoy of Hope receives the balance of the annuity or trust upon a donor’s death. A planned gift is an appealing option for many donors because it allows them to make a more significant gift from protected assets.

Hope Society membership includes:

  • Opportunities to participate in Signature Community Events.
  • Invitations to participate in Hope Experience trips.
  • An annual luncheon and other special events and seminars.
  • Subscription to “Hope Quarterly.”
  • Special recognition at Convoy of Hope’s World Distribution Center. (Donors may request to remain anonymous.)
