Planned Giving


The Legacy Society

The Legacy Society honors and recognizes our friends who, individually and collectively, have invested in the future of Preble Street by establishing a life income gift or by including our organization in their estate plans.

Legacy gifts carry forward our mission to meet urgent needs, empower people to make change in their lives, and create solutions to homelessness and hunger in our communities.

Donor Story

“Volunteering at Preble Street opened our eyes to the extreme needs of members of our community, whether they are homeless, new Mainers, or economically disadvantaged. We have always supported Preble Street’s annual appeal and capital campaigns and now as a member of the Legacy Society our commitment is even stronger.”

— Joseph Spagnola

“Those yet unborn will weep and laugh that others care
or took the time to do this thing for those unknown,
. . . for all who may, like me, sometimes feel all alone.”
      – a Preble Street Resource Center client

We are thankful for the 60 current planned gift donors for their generosity, their vision, and their lasting commitment to serving our most vulnerable neighbors!
