During our lifetimes almost every one of us will be touched in some way by the work of the American Red Cross. For those in military service, the Red Cross is always there delivering messages from loved ones back home or sending much needed supplies. Those crushed by tornadoes, earthquakes and fires find help and comfort from the Red Cross by receiving food, shelter, clothing, and/or medicine.
Each year thousands turn to the American Red Cross for instruction in health and safety, CPR and lifesaving. We rely on the fact that the Red Cross will always be there.
But providing compassionate service is expensive. Although much of the work is done by volunteers, there is still a need for support to cover supplies, research and staff efforts.You can help to maintain these ongoing efforts with a gift in your will.
It is as easy as inserting a few sentences naming the American Red Cross Greenwich Chapter as beneficiary of a specific item, or of a percentage or all of the remainder of your estate. Aside from the pure joy achieved through helping others, you have the security of knowing you are free to change your plans should you need those assets to support your family.
A gift to the Greenwich Chapter in your will helps ensure that the Red Cross will continue to be there to provide critical services to your children and grandchildren, and others throughout your community who are in need. It is a way that you can extend your legacy of concern and compassion to future generations.
We have discovered that most of our friends and supporters are quite willing to consider placing the American Red Cross Greenwich Chapter in their estate plans. They believe in our mission and want to invest part of their estate in our future financial health. Additionally, including the Greenwich Chapter in your will can help reduce the taxes on your estate.
