Make a Legacy Gift

Legacies that Serve the Children of Our Community

You can make a significant difference in the life of an abused or neglected child far into the future by including a bequest to CASA in a new will, adding a codicil to your existing will, or naming CASA El Dorado as a beneficiary of your revocable trust or life insurance policy. CASA gratefully welcomes bequests for general operating support or specific long-term needs.

A bequest to CASA El Dorado is deductible for federal estate tax purposes, and tax laws do not place limits on the amount of charitable deductions included in a person's estate. Charitable bequests are generally not subject to state inheritance taxes.

Types of Bequests
Select an avenue of support for CASA that best fits your situation and needs:
  • Cash bequest - a specific dollar amount

  • Residuary bequest - a stated percentage of the remainder of the estate after payment of specific bequests and all estate-related expenses
  • Bequest of life insurance proceeds
  • Retirement plan bequest - CASA can be designated as a beneficiary of any funds remaining in your IRA, 401K, tax-sheltered annuity, qualified pension or profit-sharing plan
