Plan a gift

Plan a gift meant for now or for the future. A planned gift is any major gift, made in lifetime or at death, as part of a donor’s overall financial and/or estate planning. Funding a planned gift contributes to One Hope United in a way that ensures stability for our organization for years to come.

Scofield Gibbs Society

OHU’s history is rooted in two acts of compassion toward children over 100 years ago. In 1895, assisted by his wife, retired Baptist missionary Rev. Ezra Scofield established a small shelter in Downers Grove, Illinois, after seeing five homeless children on their street. In 1903 in central Illinois, Alice Gibbs was determined to devote her time and means to caring for homeless children. The original sites they founded evolved the OHU we know today, serving thousands of children and families across Illinois and Florida. Today we honor Rev. and Mrs. Ezra Scofield and Mrs. Alice Gibbs’ dedicated acts of kindness through the Scofield Gibbs Society. Members of this society have made a commitment to share a part of their trust or a bequest with One Hope United, providing a valuable legacy gift that will be invested in perpetuity to ensure every child and family we serve lives life to its fullest potential.
