It’s easy to become a member


After providing for your family and loved ones, you can remember the Cape Fear Valley Health Foundation in your will for a specific dollar amount or a percentage of whatever is remaining in your estate.

Charitable Gift Annuity

You can make a gift of cash or appreciated securities, and in return, you and/or others will receive fixed, guaranteed payments for the rest of your life, along with favorable tax benefits.

Charitable Trust

You can set up a trust that provides you with current income for life for yourself and/or loved ones. You will also receive favorable tax benefits. At the end of the term of the trust, the Cape Fear Valley Health Foundation receives what is remaining in the trust.

Retirement Plans

You can name the Cape Fear Valley Health Foundation as a beneficiary of a retirement plan, enabling you to possibly avoid substantial estate and income taxes that would have been due if left to anyone other than a spouse.

Life Insurance

You can transfer ownership of a life insurance policy that is no longer needed by your family to the Cape Fear Valley Health Foundation. Or, you can make the Health Foundation the owner and beneficiary of a new policy.
