Wills and Trusts
A Gift in Your Will
We hope you’ll consider including a gift to Community Recovery Resources in your will or living trust. Called a charitable bequest, this type of gift perpetuates CoRR’s ability to help families heal from substance abuse for generations to come, and gives the donor’s heirs a significant tax break. Other major benefits of this type of gift:
It’s straightforward. Just a few sentences in your will or trust are all that is needed. Click here to read sample bequest language for Community Recovery Resources.
It’s flexible and versatile. Because you are not actually making a gift until after your lifetime, you can change your mind. You can structure the bequest to leave a specific item or amount of money, make the gift contingent on certain events, or leave a percentage of your estate to us.
It provides tax relief for your heirs. If your estate is subject to estate tax, your gift is entitled to an estate tax charitable deduction for the gift’s full value.
