Planned Giving

Planned giving is a wonderful way to help make sure Stepping Stones is here in the future to serve those in need of the housing and mental health services that are so vital to our entire community. It is always an honor for us to receive gifts that have been so thoughtfully planned with the future of Stepping Stones in mind.

Even though you have already made a difference in the world by sharing your professional talents, unique callings and spirit, you know there is more to be done. By making a planned gift to Stepping Stones you will fulfill your personal conviction and make a lasting difference in the quality of life for adults with mental illness served by our organization.

Making a planned gift is easier than most people think. There are many ways to do this but the most common planned gifts we receive are from friends of Stepping Stones who include us in their bequests. It has been our experience that family members take great pride in their loved one’s decision to leave a portion of their estate to our organization.

Since your financial situation is unique, we encourage you to seek the counsel of your personal financial planner, attorney or other professional advisor to complete your planned giving. If we can be of assistance with this, please contact Randy Roberson at 815-963-0683 or by email at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.

We hope you will begin making plans to include Stepping Stones in your planned giving right away. Remember as one planned gift donor said, “It’s almost like living forever.” You can leave a lasting legacy.
