Your Gift Matters
Make a Big Impact With a Future Gift
When you include Compassion & Choices in your estate plan, your generosity improves care, expands options and empowers everyone to chart their end-of-life journey. Thank you for ensuring that Compassion & Choices can impact those we serve well into the future.
Look What Your Gift Unlocks!
If you tell us about a new planned gift—or even about an existing planned gift of which we have not been notified—Compassion & Choices will receive an additional $500 donation in your honor thanks to an anonymous couple’s generosity. It’s the Legacy Challenge Match, a way to make an even bigger difference.

A Gift in Your Will or Trust
With as little as one sentence, you can make a gift in your will or trust that significantly impacts the efforts of Compassion & Choices. Whether you choose to give a set amount or a percentage of your estate, your support ensures we are able to continue our work for years to come.
Gifts of Real Estate
When you give us appreciated property you have held longer than one year, you qualify for a federal income tax charitable deduction. This eliminates capital gains tax. And you no longer have to deal with that property’s maintenance costs, property taxes or insurance.
Donor Advised Fund
A donor advised fund, which is like a charitable savings account, gives you the flexibility to recommend how much and how often money is granted to Compassion & Choices and other qualified charities.
Retirement Plan Assets
Retirement plan assets are a great way to support the mission of Compassion & Choices, but they also can provide tax relief for your loved ones. Consider leaving your loved ones less heavily taxed assets and leaving your retirement plan assets to Compassion & Choices.
A Gift From Your IRA
If you are 70½ years or older, you can take advantage of a simple way to give to the Compassion & Choices and receive tax benefits in return. You can give up to $100,000 from your IRA directly to a qualified charity without having to pay income taxes on the money.
Gifts of Stock or Mutual Funds
If you’re looking for a tax-smart way to empower everyone to chart their end-of-life journey, consider a gift of stock. When you give appreciated stock or mutual funds that you’ve owned for more than one year, you can avoid capital gains tax and receive a charitable income tax deduction when you itemize.

Donating cryptocurrency is safe, easy and tax-efficient! If you have owned Bitcoin or another digital currency that is worth more than what you paid for it, one way to save on taxes is to donate it to Compassion & Choices using our easy, convenient tool. Your gift qualifies for an income tax deduction for its fair market value, up to 30% of your adjusted gross income with a five-year carryover. If you have held your cryptocurrency for more than a year, you also avoid the capital gains tax you would have paid if you sold it.
Gifts of Life Insurance
If you have a life insurance policy whose original purpose no longer applies, you can give your policy a new purpose: supporting the work of Compassion & Choices. You can choose among three ways to turn your policy into a transformative gift.
