Giving to The Cedars Today and Tomorrow!

When we give to charitable causes, we enrich not only our own lives, but those touched by our generosity. What we often call “planned giving” helps for the future, establishing a firm financial foundation for tomorrow’s Cedars. “Current gifts” help with ongoing operations now, provide additional day-to-day support for residents who are unable to pay fully for the care and support they need, or help upgrade current equipment or amenities for residents.

This section of our website provides you with snapshots of various approaches to giving and the stories of donors who have experienced one or more of these approaches.

  • Ways to make a current gift outlines specific procedures for making a gift using various gifting tools.
  • Planned giving identifies a variety of approaches you might use to make a legacy gift that will extend beyond your lifetime.
  • Types of assets names various kinds of property that could be useful as gifts.
  • Donor stories profiles the personal stories of a few donors who have chosen to support The Cedars and why they made that decision.

Weaving together a gifting plan can be a challenging and rewarding process that leads you to think through the interplay of your values with your resources and your personal and family needs. If the ideas presented on pages in this giving section of our website seem either confusing or arouse your curiosity, we are glad to talk through your questions with you. Contact us at advancement@thecedars.org or (620) 241-0919.

Please feel free to ask us for an informal discussion with you which might eventually produce some ideas you would want to take to your financial advisor, attorney, accountant, or family members for evaluation or implementation.
