Planned Giving – Leaving a Legacy
Make a gift in your will or estate
You can support the mission of the Carousel Center as part of your estate plan. A planned gift is a thoughtful way to put your assets to good use after you and your loved ones no longer need them. It’s a gift that will help Cape Fear region children and families achieve healthy futures for generations to come.
Remembering The Carousel Center in your will, trust, or insurance plans provides a lasting legacy to ensure that the services of the Carousel Center are there for years to come. Your gift helps ensure that the Carousel Center will continue to provide healing, promote justice, and foster resilience in children victimized by physical or sexual abuse and to improve our community through education, prevention and advocacy in Brunswick, New Hanover and Pender counties. Learn more about what we do. You can join The Carousel Center Legacy Society by making a formal provision for The Carousel Center’s future in your long-term giving plans.
Leave a Legacy can be done in many ways, some rather uncommon — see the list below. The most common means are by a simple bequest in your will, trust, or general estate plans. Insurance plans are also a frequent option, with the Carousel Center as a beneficiary. You could even qualify for a tax deduction if a payment to the Carousel Center is designated to purchase such insurance. By making a Legacy gift, you will have the satisfaction of knowing that children victimized by physical or sexual abuse will have a place to tell their story, to receive healing services, and justice, for generations to come.
Because such gifts are such a personal matter, we suggest two things:
- Contact Laurie Taylor at 910-254-9898 or email her at email@example.com to set up a time to talk about the lasting impact of your gift.
- Talk with your financial adviser, attorney or estate specialist about making a Legacy gift to The Carousel Center through your estate.
