People In Need Endowment Fund


We would like to extend an invitation to you to join the People In Need, Inc. Legacy Society.

The Legacy Society is a program designed to build long range stability for People In Need, Inc. of Delaware, Ohio (PIN).  Through the Legacy Society, you can include PIN in your future charitable giving plans and help ensure that PIN will be able to assist your Delaware County neighbors that may need a hand in the future.  Additionally, there may be potential tax advantages by including a charitable gift in your estate plan.  The Legacy Society provides you the opportunity to support a cause that is meaningful to you and creates a lasting legacy to your generosity.

All donations made through the Legacy Society are deposited in the People In Need, Inc. of Delaware County, Ohio Endowment Fund.  Among other things, the PIN Endowment Fund will help us to:

  • Provide balanced meals,
  • Assist with the purchase of critical medical prescriptions,
  • Help families avoid eviction,
