Planned Giving

At Good Samaritan Services, your giving is vital to the success of our mission. In addition to direct giving, you can support us through planned giving.

Through gift planning, you can provide future support for Good Samaritan Services, while also giving you and your loved ones financial flexibility, potential tax benefits, and even income for life.

For more information, contact Nate Hoffer, Chief Executive Officer at or 717-951-1166. 


Through a bequest plan, you can designate Good Samaritan Services as the beneficiary of assets by will, trust, or another instrument.

Charitable gift annuities

A gift annuity is a great way to help Good Samaritan Services while also securing your future, with guaranteed payments for life.*

Charitable remainder trusts

A charitable remainder trust is an ideal way to turn your assets (like real estate and securities) into a charitable gift without losing much of your capital gains to taxes – and support Good Samaritan Services at the same time.

IRAs and tax-deferred accounts

If you have a tax-deferred account, such as a traditional IRA (individual retirement account), you can donate it to charity upon your death and help your estate avoid paying substantial taxes that may be due.

Farm commodities

Farmers can donate commodities like grain or livestock instead of cash to Good Samaritan Services, while also reducing taxes.

Gifts of stock

You can turn your investments into cash without losing a large portion of your capital gains to taxes by donating all or a portion of your stock to Good Samaritan Services.

Gifts of real estate

Giving a charitable gift of real estate is an option for owners of farmland, commercial or residential rental property, or vacant investment land.

Life insurance

Life insurance is a practical and affordable way to donate more than you may have thought possible.

*Gift annuity payments are dependent on the financial ability of the issuing entity to pay.
