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.
