The Stokes Endowment Fund

Since the 1970’s, Palatine Township Senior Citizens Council (PTSCC) has provided programs and services which support the independence and well-being of older adults and promote their participation in the community.

By giving to The Stokes Endowment Fund, your gift/pledge will help ensure that PTSCC’s interests extend into the future and provide much needed support for older adults in our community.

A gift of any amount is accepted and you can arrange to make a ‘planned gift’ or a cash donation during or after your lifetime.  A ‘planned gift’ simply means making a pledge to remember PTSCC in your will or estate plan.    

The PTSCC Heritage Society is designed to recognize those who remember PTSCC through a ‘planned gift’ and for those who have given a one-time gift of $250 or more to The Stokes Endowment Fund.

Leave Your Legacy-It’s time to take the next step to plants seeds for the future!

  1. Contribute a gift of any amount to the endowment for possible tax advantages.
  2. Contribute a one-time gift of $250 or more to the endowment to be part of the Heritage Society.  
  3. Include a simple bequest in your Will or Trust Agreement.
  4. Leave a percentage of your estate, instead of dollar amount, to PTSCC.
  5. Designate PTSCC as the beneficiary of your life insurance policy, or Charitable Remainder Trust (which pays a set income to you or those you name, before PTSCC receives the remainder), or Charitable Lead Trust (which pays income to PTSCC for a period of years before you or your heirs receive the remainder).
