The Red Cross honors every planned gift donor with membership in the Legacy Society. We invite you to become a member of the Legacy Society, created exclusively to honor and recognize people who have helped to continue our lifesaving work through a gift to the American Red Cross in their wills, trusts or estate plans. As a Red Cross Legacy Society member, you’ll receive a certificate of appreciation and a Legacy Society lapel pin to serve as a reminder to others of your support of our mission. Your gift can be recognized publicly, unless you prefer to give anonymously. The society also provides information and assistance to donors considering a planned gift.
What Is the Next Step?
If you have already arranged for a bequest or other planned gift, we would like to honor your support. Please notify us and become a member. If you are still considering such a gift, let us know so we can help you and your advisors complete your gift in a way that benefits your estate and makes clear your intention to help the Red Cross.
When you join the Legacy Society, you demonstrate your commitment to the humanitarian mission of the Red Cross and help ensure the long-term strength of the organization.
