Legacy Giving

Be remembered for your passion with a Legacy Gift.

Legacy giving, or planned giving, is a special way to be remembered for your passion for squash.  Legacy gifts ensure that US Squash can continue to meet the needs of the squash community for years to come by offering a reliable stream of revenue that is designated to programs that are meaningful to the donor.  Legacy gifts can be given in a variety of ways including:

  • Bequests: A gift of any amount or form made to US Squash in a donor’s will.
  • Life Insurance:  Naming US Squash as a beneficiary of a retirement plan or life insurance policy.
  • Charitable Lead Trust:  An arrangement whereby income generating assets may be placed in a trust with US Squash for a designated period of years, after which time the assets transfer to non-charitable beneficiaries named by the donor.

Legacy gifts to US Squash are incredibly meaningful and make a deep impact on the effectiveness and reach of the organization long-term.  These gifts allow the organization to honor those who value the past and present role that squash has played in their lives.

I have included US Squash in my estate planning because it’s important to me that future generations can benefit from this special sport the way my family and I have.”   –Leonard A. Bernheimer, Hall of Fame member and former US Squash Chairman of the Board
