Planned Giving

Make a planned gift to support young adult mental health for generations to come. 

Stella’s Place is the “healing hub” for young people in need of mental health support. Your planned gift will help us “be there” for young adults so they can reach their full potential.

We would be happy to work with you and your financial advisor to plan a meaningful gift that best suits your giving goals. If you have already included a planned gift to Stella’s Place, please let us know so we may recognize your generosity.
