Planned Gifts

A Legacy for Future Generations

Shelley Gorson and Alan Salpeter


“I have a tremendous pride of place. To me it is vital that our precious legacy, which we have inherited, be preserved for our children and grandchildren” says Shelley Gorson, Vice Chair of Landmarks Illinois’ Board of Directors.

“This is why I have decided to help Landmarks Illinois carry out its mission—to preserve and protect our architectural and cultural heritage—decades from now, by including the organization as a beneficiary in my will.”


Approximately 80 percent of all planned gifts to nonprofit organizations are bequests, according to the National Trust

or Historic Preservation. The National Committee on Planned Giving also notes that 65 percent of donors make their estate decisions before they reach retirement age
