Estate Planning
Make a Plan to Support Your Lotus Center

The ongoing generosity of the people of our community helps to ensure the viability and sustainability of our community-owned, non-profit Lotus Center.  In order to broaden our outreach and bring benefit to more people, raising additional funds above and beyond fees from classes is imperative.  We continue to prove what we can accomplish together.  So, as you contemplate what Lotus Center means to you, and to our community, we invite you to support of our ongoing mission of bringing peace and well-being to the people of our community, and around the globe . . .

Did you know that planned gifts/estate planning is another means through which you can ensure that Lotus Center will continue to serve our community for generations to come? With these legacies of generosity, Lotus can continue provide a place and a presence through which we can help southwest New Mexico continue become a place of peace in our world.

A simple and straight-forward means of support can be to name Lotus Center as a beneficiary of your will and/or trust with a one-time gift of cash or other asset(s) to be disbursed upon the settlement of your estate.

Another, equally-meaningful vehicle is a Charitable Gift Annuity (CGA).  Benefits of a CGA include:

  • Receive fixed payments to you or another beneficiary you designate for life
  • Receive a charitable income tax deduction for the charitable gift portion of the annuity
  • Benefit from payments that may be partially tax-free
  • Further Lotus Center community service programs, such as Yoga in Public Schools, with your gift

NOTE: Information on establishing a CGA is forthcoming.  Please check back . . .

Do you have questions about naming Lotus as a beneficiary of your will or trust?  If so, please write us at

Thank you for supporting your non-profit, community-owned Lotus Center.
