Lean into your Legacy

Planned Gifts Do Not Require Great Wealth- Just Great Vision

We invite you also to consider your own long-term generosity through planned giving with Eden Seminary.  Planned gifts help you create a meaningful legacy for you and your family and secure the future of Eden’s mission.  Planned gifts may allow you to make a gift beyond your expectations while also gaining tax advantages and other benefits.
