Legacy Donor Circle

A planned gift preserves the quality of our services for our clients now and future, while helping us develop innovative programs that will seek to prevent, treat, and heal our communities that are struggling with addiction.

Make an important impact to Sun Street Centers that doesn’t cost you anything during your lifetime, but that is priceless as part of a legacy that you leave behind to the community. As you plan with your family and advisors, please consider including Sun Street Centers in your estate planning. By adding Sun Street Centers to your estate plan, you will become a member of the Legacy Donor Circle.

Legacy Circle membership involves no dues, obligations, or solicitations, but it does allow us to thank you and recognize you for the plans you have made, and it may inspire generosity in others, by featuring you on our donor wall. Benefits of membership in Sun Street Centers Legacy Circle include invitations to a special annual dinner, a feature in the annual legacy circle report, invitations to special events, and a special copy of our annual program evaluation and impact report. Naming opportunities are also available, dependent on the size of the bequest.

The most important benefit you will receive from joining The Sun Street Centers Legacy Circle is the satisfaction derived from making a lasting contribution to our long-term prosperity. Alcoholism and addiction treatment is a vital investment for a healthy and vibrant community, and a key component of health and public safety. Thank you for being a part of the long-term solutions.
