Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

1 | Continue Legacy Retreats® as the ultimate way to inspire hope and to gain insights from the families to whom we
minister directly.
2 | Create content in order to minister with greater depth and breadth.
3 | Use content and expertise to position Inheritance of Hope (IoH) as the leader in legacy development for young
families facing the loss of a parent.

1 | Continue Legacy Retreats® as the ultimate way to inspire hope and to gain insights from the families to whom we minister directly.

IoH continues to pursue new partnerships (e.g., hotels, airlines, theme parks) in its existing Legacy Retreat® locations
(Orlando, NYC) as well as seeking new retreat locations to better serve families across the United States.

2 | Create content in order to minister with greater depth and breadth.

In 2020, we launched our [email protected] app and [email protected] Groups to foster resources and relationships.

In 2020, we hosted our first eReunion, bringing together more than 1,000 people served by IoH since our inception.

In 2020, we launched eRetreats for families who were unable to travel.

In 2020, we made Legacy Videos available for anyone.

A key goal of Inheritance of Hope's strategic initiatives is to develop and curate programs that position the
organization as a thought leader in legacy development. As such, we will:
1 | increase awareness of the incredible need within our society (1 in 20 children, aged 15 and under, will suffer the loss of a parent)
2 | develop products of value for families and communities we serve
3 | deliver unparalleled service in a way that is sustainable on a national scale

The expansion of these resources will not only complement the families we host, but also serve families and caregivers nationwide who are unable to attend our Legacy Retreat®.

Inheritance of Hope has grown our staff to 16 and our pool of volunteers to 223. We have solid partnerships that allow us to deliver life-changing Legacy Retreats® while stretching the donated dollar. IoH has Founders who have lived through the illness and death of a parent, as well as a CEO who has the perspective of facing both the illness and loss of a spouse.

As of December 2020, IoH has served more than 700 families from 44 states.
