Most of us can make a significant gift from our estate to continue support for our favorite charities after we return to our heavenly father. You can designate your gift for Mary's Shelter current operations, or to the Mary's Shelter Endowment Fund where your gift will ensure our services will be available to pregnant teens for years to come - making you a Guardian Angel.

    Please consider naming Mary's Shelter in your will or trust, designating a specific dollar amount or percentage of your estate to "Mary's Shelter, a nonprofit California Corporation." Alternatively, consider naming Mary's Shelter as a beneficiary of your life-insurance policy. Contact your Financial Planner or Tax Attorney for advice.

    Make a gift to the Endowment Fund now or with a planned gift. Guardian Angels assure that no pregnant girl in need is ever turned away for lack of funds.
