Legacy Circle

Plan your gift
for a lasting legacy

Since 1976, KCSARC has partnered with donors like you to ensure survivors always have a safe and supportive place to turn for assistance in recovery, and our communites better equipped to prevent sexual violence from happening in the first place.

As demand for our services has skyrocketed, public resources to support our work have become scarcer and more unpredictable. Private gifts from individuals like you have strengthened our ability to intervene and prevent sexual assault.

That strong individual support is crucial to our ability to plan ahead. We invite you to join KCSARC’s Legacy Circle and be part of our continued leadership and innovation in this arena well into the future.

Support survivors and their families with legacy gift options*:

Bequest — Designating a legacy gift to KCSARC in your will or trust is one of the simplest ways to partner with KCSARC. A bequest of cash, securities or other property can be designated as a fixed amount or percentage of your estate or of a specific asset.
Gifts of assets — Through vehicles such as a charitable remainder trust or gift annuities, it’s possible to receive income for life, reduce your taxes and create a lasting gift that enables KCSARC to continue responding to survivors and preventing sexual assault.
Life insurance — A life insurance policy that has outlasted its intended purpose can be used to reduce your taxes and create your legacy gift to KCSARC.
Retirement plans — You can reduce or even eliminate tax liabilities on your retirement plan by naming KCSARC as a direct beneficiary.

“I have supported KCSARC because I know work is being done to heal individuals and families. It’s all about healing for me. Unfortunately, bad things happen but KCSARC provides a healing path to allow people to recover and have a new life.”
