BEDFORD, Texas, Oct. 01, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Legacy Housing Corporation (NASDAQ: LEGH) today announced Curtis D. Hodgson, Executive Chairman of the Board, entered into an agreement to convey 1,600,000 shares of Legacy’s common stock to Dechomai Asset Trust, a 501(c)(3) trust and charitable organization. Dechomai Asset Trust is a supporting organization for the Dechomai Foundation.
The Dechomai Foundation is a national donor advised fund that assists charitable organizations and donors in the process of receiving, managing, liquidating, and granting proceeds from non-cash donations. This helps charities receive as many charitable grants as possible, expanding the philanthropic pie. Dechomai allows other charities to outsource the expertise needed and the potential risks inherent in accepting non-cash assets. Dechomai accepts non-cash asset donations, provides administrative services, and then grants the net proceeds of the sale of the asset to the originating charity.
Dechomai already held 850,000 shares of Legacy stock from a previous donation by Mr. Hodgson.
Mr. Hodgson stated: “I have a long-standing relationship with Dechomai and the outstanding people there and I know this transaction will ultimately assist many deserving charitable organizations. This transaction enabled me to accelerate my long-term charitable plans in a manner that will provide benefits to Dechomai much sooner than I had previously hoped. I retain a significant position in Legacy stock and I remain completely committed and dedicated to the growth of Legacy in the near and the long-term.”
