Planned Giving

Planned Gifts Provide Hope and Benefits

Your generosity to Cancer Support Community can do so much – you can leave a lasting imprint on the world and truly help those confronting cancer for generations to come. Thoughtful estate planning is also an astute and fulfilling way to achieve your personal financial goals, provide clarity to your family, and ensure that your philanthropic vision is realized as you wish.

Cancer Support Community’s Legacy of Hope Society

Cancer Support Community has a very special community of supporters who are dedicated to making certain that CSC is there even after their lifetimes – the Legacy of Hope Society. Membership in the Legacy of Hope Society is extended when an individual makes Cancer Support Community a beneficiary of his or her estate plan.

Benefits include:

  • Welcome package expressing our gratitude
  • Special letter with each quarterly newsletter from CSC’s Planned Giving Committee Chair
  • Invitation to Cancer Support Community’s annual Legacy of Hope Society & Board Reunion Celebration, where you and other like-minded people are recognized for your legacy giving for families facing cancer
  • Your name, if you choose, to be featured on Cancer Support Community’s website, in our Annual Report, and on our Donor Wall in CSC’s living room
  • Personal visit with Cancer Support Community’s Executive Director

​We hope you will join this foundational and treasured group. Your legacy gift will have a tremendous impact on the lives of cancer patients and their loved ones…today and tomorrow.
