Planned Giving to United Cancer
You may think that you have to be wealthy to join a Legacy Family, but there is nothing further from the truth!
As you know, United Cancer relies completely on local donations to carry out our mission helping Elkhart County cancer patients. However, direct cash donations are only one way to support our cause. Actually, you may have several methods that you could use to support United Cancer’s mission.
For example, end-of-life gifts are an easy way to support United Cancer without feeling the budget crunch now. Naming United Cancer for a percentage of your estate after passing is an excellent method of support. Even easier, is to call your insurance agent and designate United Cancer for a percentage of your life insurance benefit. One of the most popular Legacy Gifts is to name United Cancer for Memorial Donations instead of flowers when family members pass away.
Designating funds from your retirement account is an smart way to avoid potentially heavy taxes and not affect your monthly budget. As is donating property such as a house, land, or a car. You may have stock either personally or in a retirement fund that has grown over the years, and donating that stock will avoid large capital gains taxes. If you have a trust or charitable fund, you could send donations to United Cancer from that source too.
Also, you could designate Legacy Gifts directly to United Cancer or to our fund at the Elkhart County Community Foundation. Whatever your method, if you have questions please feel free to call Pete at (574) 875-5158, and if you choose to leave local cancer patients a Legacy Gift, please tell us so that we can add your name to our Legacy Family
Thank you for your caring and support!
