Planned Giving

Making a planned gift to Skyland Trail assures the ongoing growth of our landmark work, with profound benefits for our clients, their families, and our community. Skyland Trail can help you plan how to make a gift. While we do not provide estate or tax advice, our development professionals will work with you and your financial advisor to achieve your charitable goals. Options include: 

  • Charitable trusts
  • Insurance Policies
  • Real Estate
  • Tangible Property

Planned giving provides many tax-wise ways to designate your assets that can benefit you and your loved ones, while also making a lasting impact at Skyland Trail. These legacy gifts ensure that Skyland Trail continues to meet the needs of future generations through state-of-the art facilities and innovative, leading-edge treatment programs.

Whether you would like to put your donation to work today or benefit us after your lifetime, you can find a charitable plan that lets you provide for your family and support Skyland Trail.

The Cypress Society

Individuals who make a planned gift join the Skyland Trail Cypress Society.

In ground too loose and shifting for other trees, the cypress tree soars to great heights. The huge base of the cypress gives stability and strength, enabling the tree to overcome extreme conditions. A single cypress tree can live for 1,000 years. And where cypress trees grow together, they provide unique habitat and make the surrounding world more interesting, healthy and beautiful.

Thanks to the insights of a special friend of Skyland Trail, Randolph W. Thrower, the cypress tree has become an important emblem for us. As a member of the Cypress Society, your planned gift will provide strength and stability for the ongoing work of Skyland Trail, helping our clients thrive and enrich their communities.
