Planned Giving | Winter 2017 Newsletter


Planning Today for Tomorrow

When CaringKind expanded to the third floor in March 2013 to build our Program Center for Education, Training, and The Harry and Jeanette Weinberg Early Stage Center, we were able to do so because of the generosity of individuals who had planned ahead and left us in their estate plans. The bequests that we receive are from grateful clients who wish to give back in appreciation for the support and help they receive during the very difficult journey of caring for, or knowing, an individual with dementia.

Planned giving is a way to support CaringKind through your will, a retirement account, a trust, or other vehicles to make a charitable contribution after your death. Through estate planning, you can make a meaningful impact helping others who are heartbreakingly affected by a diagnosis of Alzheimer’s disease or a related dementia. For more than 30 years we have been a leader in dementia care, setting the gold standard for care.

Though we all hope for a cure or an effective treatment or therapy, we know that in its absence, the best course of treatment is good care. Your contribution enables us to plan ahead so that we can develop innovative, creative, and leading-edge caregiving initiatives to ensure that caregivers today and tomorrow have a place to turn for the best in dementia care.

Gifts of any size are appreciated and every single gift is important to helping us. Please see the Ways to Give section on bequests on page 18 for further information or please contact Carol Berne at 646-744-2905 or cberne@caringkindnyc.org.
