Build Your Legacy

The Starting Point, Inc. of New Jersey’s Legacy Society

Create a legacy that shows the community you care

As a caring member of The Starting Point community, you’ve already expressed your values as someone who wishes to help and support those with conditions that have often been misunderstood and sadly, stigmatized. Far too many people suffer or have even died from addiction and mental health issues because they could not find the help they so greatly needed like other medical conditions.

Perhaps you wish you could do even more, but are unable to at this time? There is a way you can help others, by helping us – would you consider including The Starting Point of NJ in your will, a trust or other financial plan? You can make a profound difference that will be felt everywhere, by any family struggling with addiction; a child with depression and anxiety; someone in crisis; those in recovery seeking peer support.

“Planned Giving” is easy to do and you don’t have to be wealthy to participate. It can involve assets you might never think of – a life insurance policy, an IRA, a Certificate of Deposit or another sellable asset. You can dedicate your gift in honor of someone special. Preparing a Will allows you to take control of very important and personal decisions, rather than having the state or courts make those decisions for your family.

 After your family and loved ones are taken care of and taxes are paid, there are many ways you can leave behind a legacy. Naming The Starting Point of NJ as a Beneficiary of a specific amount in your will is easy to do by simply using language such as –

“I give and devise to The Starting Point, Inc. of New Jersey (Tax ID #23-2024290), located in Haddon Township, New Jersey, the sum of $___________ to be used for its general support (or for the support of a specific fund or program).”

A gift from your Estate will leave the Legacy of who you are and what you cared about! Your estate gift will have a lasting impact on the families, friends, and neighbors who seek a meaningful life. It lets you pass on the gratitude in your life to provide hope for others.

If you have any questions, or would like to let us here at The Starting Point of NJ know about your generous intention to include our 501©(3) non-profit organization in your Will, we’d value hearing from you. Please contact our Executive Director Loretta Depka Zerbo via e-mail at or by calling her at 856-854-3155, ext. 179.
