Planned Gifts

Estate gifts to Carmichael Parks Foundation help build your personal legacy and ensure children, families and seniors can continue to enjoy and benefit from facilities, outdoor parks and recreational programs.

Gifts By Will Or Trust

Your will or living trust can provide for your loved ones and also help meet your charitable giving goals. Charitable gifts through your long-range plans, or bequests, can be for a specific dollar amount or a percentage of your estate.

If you want to add a gift to a will or trust that is already in place, speak to your legal counsel about adding an amendment.
