Ways to Give

MemoryCare welcomes support of all kinds. We exist because of a need in our community for the type of care we offer that includes families in the care of those with cognitive disorders. We rely on the generosity of the community to be here and are grateful for the support we receive.

Planned Giving

Planned Giving is more than a term for planning your estate and ways to make a long term impact to an organization.  For many, it is a conscious decision to leave a lasting legacy of support for those in need.  For MemoryCare, it is a valued partnership to help secure our long term future, to ensure we continue to provide comprehensive treatment with the care and dignity caregivers and individuals with memory loss deserve.

Estate planning or gift planning ensures the future for MemoryCare.  Such gifts can lower taxes or even provide income for the donor.  There are many options such as bequests, charitable gift annuities and/or trusts, donating appreciated common stock, gifting the qualified charitable distribution to fulfill the required minimum distribution (RMD) from an IRA account and more.  Development Director, Janet Doyle, is pleased to help make this easy for you and would be glad to talk with you about giving options.  Janet may be reached at 828-771-2219, or by email, doyle@memorycare.org.

MemoryCare is grateful to receive a gift from any of the following vehicles: will, trusts, family advised funds, charitable remainder trusts, endowments,  insurance and retirement policies.
