Planned Giving

Ways to give ...  and receive a personal benefit

Putting your money where your heart is ....

Donors find tremendous satisfaction and fulfillment in joining with others who are truly making a difference at the Reserve. Beyond memberships, the Torrey Pines Association invites you to leave a lasting legacy and remember the Reserve in your estate planning.
