Create a Lasting Tribute
Honor Someone Special With a Future Gift in Their Name
If you have a loved one who has been impacted by The Carter Center, establishing a memorial or tribute gift is a meaningful way to honor your loved one or celebrate a special occasion such as a birthday while supporting the work of our mission. Your memorial or tribute gift will be a lasting tribute to your loved one and make a difference in the lives of those we serve.
We are inspired by the work of The Carter Center, and we want our legacy to be a part of the work that brings peace, health, and hope to those less fortunate."
—Denise and Ross Cooper
An Example of How It Works
When Sarah's father passed away, she knew she wanted to do something that would establish a lasting legacy for him. She remembered that during his lifetime he was always praising the Center for its tireless efforts to better his community.
Sarah decided to make a gift to the the Center in her father's name using appreciated securities. Not only will her father's legacy live on at the Center thanks to the gift and a commemorative plaque, but Sarah also received a federal income tax charitable deduction (because she itemizes her taxes) and eliminated capital gains tax on the securities.
