Planned Giving

Leave a legacy for people who are visually impaired or blind

Your planned gift to The Iris Network not only helps those with visual impairment, it can have tax and income benefits for you and your family as well. 

And ultimately, your philanthropic legacy lives on through your gift. You will help The Iris Network continue to reach people with visual impairment who may have never known the technology and education that exist to help them— to navigate their environment, reenter the workforce, and function independently at school, work, or home. 

Join our Visionary Society with a gift through your will, estate plans, charitable trust, stocks, or annuities
A simple and effective way to ensure the future of the services you care about while providing tax benefits for your heirs, your membership in the Visionary Society means you advocate for those with vision loss for generations to come. 

How do you make a planned gift?
You can consult with your attorney, estate planner, or financial advisor at any time to determine which planned giving option is right for you and your loved ones, as certain options provide tax and income benefits during your lifetime. You may make your gift unrestricted, or discuss with us first if you’d like to designate it to a specific purpose. 

You can provide the following sample language to your advisor:

"I give (______ dollars) or (__ percent of the residue of my estate) to The Iris Network or its charitable successor, for the benefit of The Iris Network and for its general purposes."  

Please contact Regal Naseef, Director of Development, at (207) 518-5016 with any questions.
