Planned Giving

Your lasting gift

One story: Tina and Bill Anderson
Tina Anderson feels fortunate that her three
grown children – and now her four grandchildren
– all live close-by in Louisiana. So when she
and her husband Bill,a native Shreveporter, made
a large donation to Volunteers of America of North
Louisiana’s endowment,Tina said it was like a gift
to the future.
“This community has been so good to our
family,” she said.“It only increased our joy to be
able to give something back to the next generations.”

Since 1935, Volunteers of America has sought to meet the needs of the most vulnerable residents of North Louisiana.

Our services have evolved over the years to focus on children and families, people with disabilities, seniors and veterans. Your generosity means thousands of lives have been changed for the better. In the coming years, we’re sure the specific programs will change, but we know needs will remain.

You can help us continue our work in perpetuity through planned giving. These gifts can come in a variety of forms and be targeted however you would like. The most important part is that you let us know what you decide.

If you aren’t sure how to proceed, we’ll be happy to talk through the options. Below are two brochures to explain further, or you can contact Lisa Brandeburg at for more information.

Thank you for leaving your legacy of compassion!
