Josephine and Frank Duvenecks’ hearts were extended to countless people. Their legacy demonstrates the impact that one family or one person can have on their community to contribute to real and lasting change in the world. Making a planned gift to Hidden Villa ensures that future generations will be able to enjoy our educational programs, experience our multicultural summer camps and have access to our 1600 acres of wilderness and organic farmland.  tilted_devo_lamb_lz

Planned giving can take the form of a bequest of income or real estate in your will, but there are many options to leverage a planned giving program to have a long-term impact on Hidden Villa’s financial sustainability. Such options include the establishment of a charitable lead or charitable remainder trust and naming Hidden Villa as a beneficiary on your life insurance policy. Our planned giving specialists are dedicated to creating programs that can be tailored to match your needs as well as provide you and your family with tax benefits.  

Duveneck Legacy Society

Those who have notified us that they plan to make Hidden Villa a beneficiary are invited to join our Legacy Society. This group of conscientious philanthropists convenes on an annual basis for a farm-fresh brunch in the Duveneck Living Room in recognition of their extraordinary commitment to support their community. The Legacy Society is also invited to join us at special events such as our annual tomato tasting and others.
