Legacy & Planned Giving

Why should I make a Legacy Gift to CARE?

Perhaps what matters to you most is ensuring that CARE continues our mission to serve individuals and families in the poorest communities in the world. Or maybe what’s most important to you is enhancing your family’s financial security. Giving a planned gift can help you accomplish both.

From naming CARE in your will, to charitable trusts, retirement plan gifts and gift annuities, there are many giving options to choose from. Our Planned Giving team can help you understand all the options and their benefits. Please contact us for more information. Your lasting legacy and compassion will ensure that CARE programs will continue for generations to come, while also providing some financial benefits to you and your family.

I HAVE A WILL

I want help identifying the right gift for my situation by comparing possible outcomes and types of assets that can be used to fund my donation.

I NEED ASSISTANCE PLANNING

I would like to know what the most important elements of a solid estate plan are and how I can begin crafting a plan that benefits the people and causes I care about.

BEQUEST LANGUAGE

If you plan to make a gift by will, think it through carefully. Then, meet with your attorney to discuss and update your will. Be clear in describing what you want given to whom.
