Bequest and Legacy Gifts
Ensure what you leave behind is a legacy. After you’ve taken care of your family and friends, leave a portion of your estate to CORA. With a simple sentence you can leave a life-changing legacy! For more information email us or take a look at the Bequest Workbook.
If you want to make a donation but are a little tight on cash, don’t forget that CORA accept gifts of stock. We work with a Smith Barney broker who makes the process fast and easy. Contact us at 650-652-0800 x 112 or email us for more information.
Many employers will match the contributions of their employees, some up to three times the amount of the original gift! This is a great way to leverage your donation and help even more people in need. Visit the matching gifts page to see if your employer will match your gift.
Memorial & Honorary Gifts
Remembering loved ones can take on new meaning when you make a memorial gift to CORA. Send us the name and address of the person being memorialized and those to whom the gift should be acknowledged. We’ll promptly notify each party of your memorial donation and follow up with a confirmation to you. Contact us at 650-652-0800 x 112 or email us for more information.
Making an honorary donation to CORA instead of the customary holiday gift, birthday gift, anniversary gift, Mother’s Day gift, Father’s Day gift, or in celebration of other occasions can add extra meaning to your gift. We will promptly notify the honoree of your donation and send you confirmation of the contribution.
