A Gift for Future Generations
Providing for future generations is something we all want. When you donate to HMI, you are investing in a healthier world for us all. In turn, HMI will help your values live on.
“My support of HMI began in 2002 because there are few ways one can invest in an organization focused on the vitality of the land. That land is central to healthy food and to the lives of people just like you and me in every community. It turns out everything we care about in a thriving world goes back to that land. Is it any wonder I continue my support including through my estate?” – Ron Chapman, Georgia
Creating an estate plan is a wonderful, effective way to ensure your values are passed on in a meaningful, impactful way when you are gone – a way of your choosing. There are a variety of options you can implement within your estate plan that allow you to make a gift of your estate now to HMI that will carry forward to the next generation of land stewards and local food advocates – ensuring the sustainability of thriving communities.
Please let us know if you have included HMI in your estate plan so that we may properly recognize and thank you for your generous gift!

Designate HMI As A Beneficiary
Naming HMI as a beneficiary of your life insurance, retirement plan or annuity assets that require a designated recipient (and are not subject to the terms of your will) can be an easy way to ensure your estate passes to those you love while still supporting the important work of HMI. You can designate HMI as a beneficiary of your:
- Life insurance
- IRAs and retirement plans
- Annuity assets
