Gifts in Your Will
To create your legacy to help end poverty, you simply sign your name. That’s how easy it can be to include a gift in your Will. It costs you nothing now, but your impact goes on for generations protecting the future of our neighbors through CCA. Once your family and friends are provided for, please consider making your love of helping the less fortunate part of your life story with your legacy gift.
Here are ways most people like to make this lasting change:

CCA receives a specific dollar amount or a specified gift in kind (collections, art, books, jewelry, and so on). This gift will be used where it’s needed most. Gifts in kind will be sold and proceeds will be used for protecting the future of our neighbors and CCA.
