Estate Planning

One way to ensure that CC4C can continue rescuing, caring for, and placing homeless and abandoned cats in loving, permanent homes is through estate planning. By making a bequest or other planned gift to CC4C, Contra Costa County’s largest and oldest cat rescue group, you will continue to help us save the lives of countless abandoned cats for years to come.

Several Ways to Help

Some examples of charitable estate planning include:

  • Name Community Concern for Cats as a beneficiary in a will or living trust
  • Establish a Charitable Remainder Unitrust or Annuity Trust for CC4C
  • Establish a Lead Trust for CC4C
  • Establish a charitable gift annuity for CC4C
  • Name CC4C as a beneficiary of a life insurance policy
  • Name CC4C in a retirement account—IRA, 401(k), or 403(b)
  • Name CC4C as a beneficiary of stock, mutual funds, or bank account

When naming CC4C in your will or trust, you may leave a specific dollar amount, a set percentage of your estate, or a particular property. Each of these options may help you reduce your estate taxes. Please speak with your estate planning advisor about including our organization in your plans!
