Planned Giving

We at the Lake Hopatcong Foundation are forward-thinking in our efforts to develop the resources needed to protect and improve our lake and community now and into the future. If ensuring a vibrant and healthy Lake Hopatcong for future generations is important to you, planned giving is a personal and meaningful way you can help keep our lake and community vibrant and healthy for years to come.  

What is planned giving? Planned giving is when a donor creates a financial or estate plan in which they formally decide to give something of value to an organization at a future date. Examples of planned gifts include bequests from wills or living trusts and gifts from qualified charitable distributions, life insurance policies, charitable remainder trusts, and gifts of stock.

By planning a gift in your lifetime or as your legacy, you join a special group of people ready to make a significant investment in the future of New Jersey’s largest lake. We’ve partnered with FreeWill, which provides free resources for those ready to explore the many different options for leaving a legacy with us. To discuss these and other options, don’t hesitate to call Caitlin at 973-663-2500 or email

Designate us as a Beneficiary of Non-probate assets

Do you have an IRA, 401(k), life insurance policy, or any other assets not included in your will? If so, these are called non-probate assets, and you must plan your beneficiaries for them separately. Use the tool below to make your plans and designate us as a beneficiary of one or more of these assets.

Designate beneficiaries

We accept gifts of stock

When you give a gift of stock, you are eligible to deduct the full fair-market value of the asset you donated, up to the overall amount allowed by the IRS, and avoid any capital gains taxes. To donate a gift of stock, please reach out to our development director, Caitlin Doran.

Thank you for your interest in supporting us through a planned gift!
