Legacy Giving

If you would like to extend your support of Caritas of Austin to make a lasting impact, there are several gift arrangements to choose from.

Make a Big Impact With a Future Gift

Whether you would like to support our work today or benefit us after your lifetime, you can find a charitable plan that lets you provide for your family and support Caritas of Austin. Here are some of the most popular charitable plans to consider:

Remember Us in Your Will

Structure your will to provide for your family first. Then include a gift to the charitable organizations you love. Just a few simple sentences and a meeting with an estate planning attorney are all it takes.

Make a Gift and Receive Fixed Payments for Life

If you’d like to support Caritas of Austin and receive steady payments for life, a charitable gift annuity may be right for you.

Donate Stocks

If you give stocks you’ve owned for more than one year that are worth more than when you purchased them, you’ll qualify for significant tax advantages.

Give Retirement Plan Assets

Consider making Caritas of Austin a beneficiary of a percentage of your retirement plan assets. Then, leave less heavily taxed assets to your loved ones.

Arrange a Charitable Trust

With a charitable remainder trust, you can receive income each year (either fixed or variable) from assets you place in the trust. After your lifetime, the balance in the trust goes to the charities of your choice.

Use Life Insurance to Make a Gift

There are several ways you can use life insurance to give back to Caritas of Austin. We can help you explore your options.

If you have questions or would like to discuss any of the above items, please contact Lauren Portley, Chief Development Officer, at lportley@caritasofaustin.org.
