Leaving a Legacy

You Can Leave a Legacy Even if You Are Not Rich

People often think they need a large estate in order to leave a bequest to their favorite non-profit. This is not true. Individuals from all walks of life can leave a portion of their estate to charities of their choice through their will or estate plan. While some gifts may be large, they can also be $1000 or less. You don’t have to be rich to leave a legacy.

Gifts may be in the form of money, property or investments. Tax benefits may be derived from these gifts. An attorney, accountant or financial advisor can help to determine the gift that’s right for each individual.

Consider leaving a legacy.

Consider a Bequest to CANHR

You can make a last gift to CANHR with a simple stroke of a pen.

To leave a bequest to CANHR, all you have to do is include in your will a simple statement to the effect:

“I give, devise and bequest to California Advocates For Nursing Home Reform,
located at 650 Harrison Street, 2nd Floor, San Francisco, CA 94107,
the sum $________ (or a percent of the estate), to be used for general purposes.”
