Planned Giving

A planned gift to the American Red Cross Southeast Louisiana Chapter helps secure the future of vital Red Cross programs and services and can help you achieve your financial goals as well. When you make a planned gift to the Red Cross, we will honor you with membership in our Legacy Society.

Some examples of planned gifts include a bequest in a will or trust, beneficiary designation of life insurance or retirement account, gift of a life insurance policy; and life income gifts such as Charitable Gift Annuities, Charitable Remainder Trusts and Charitable Lead Trusts.

If you have already included the Red Cross in your will or estate plan, please contact us, as we would like to honor your support. In addition we realize that by making this special gift, you consider us to be part of your family, and we want to keep you informed as to how your gift will be used and provide the opportunity for you to express your wishes. If you are considering a planned gift or simply would like to discuss the various gift planning options that are available, please contact us and we will have an American Red Cross Gift Planning Officer contact you directly.
