Planned Giving

Since 1900, revenue from bequests has enabled Columbia Lighthouse for the Blind (CLB) to help adults and children who are blind and visually impaired live independent and productive lives. If supported through an outright gift or planned gift, all of CLB’s programs are made possible through the generosity and commitment of people like you.

A planned gift to CLB helps to ensure the future of the services and programs we provide in your community, and may further your long-term financial goals with tax benefits.

A bequest may be for a fixed dollar amount, a percentage of your estate, or a residuary percentage of your estate. If you wish to include CLB in your will, please contact Cathy Miller, Director of Development, at 202-683-7707 or cmiller@clb.org for more information.
