Gift of a lifetime
Choosing to leave a gift in your will to the Ten Oaks Project will ensure that children and youth from LGBTQ+ identities, families, and communities have access to safer spaces for years to come.
The Ten Oaks Project helps children and youth gain the confidence to become community leaders. Your charitable bequest helps to create the intentional magic that changes lives.
Leaving a gift
Contrary to popular belief, you do not need to be wealthy in order to leave a gift in your will. After you’ve taken care of your loved ones, a gift of even 5% can make a huge difference to children and youth from LGBTQ+ identities, families, and communities.
