Planned gifts create a lasting legacy with The Hearing & Speech Center.

A charitable bequest is a simple way for almost anyone to create their own lasting legacy and support The Hearing & Speech Center’s mission of teaching children with hearing, speech and language impairments to listen and talk by providing them with high quality therapeutic, educational and family support services.

If you do not have a will or if your current plans are in need of updating, now is the perfect time to organize your estate plans to include HSC. If you already have a will you can simply ask your attorney to draft an amendment including HSC to your existing will.

A bequest will enable your legacy to live on at HSC. It may be used to help a struggling family with a child’s tuition or it might be used to make a major purchase which strengthens our facilities for generations to come. Regardless, it will be used to continue ensuring that no one has to be defined by their communication delay or disorder.

Please call (859) 268-4545 if you would like to discuss how you can create a lasting legacy.
