KACS Planned Giving

Cypress Legacy

What is your Legacy?

Cypress Legacy offers you the opportunity to support Kennett Area Community Service’s vision of a community without poverty where everyone can live well. 

Your charitable gift helps KACS create a stronger, more vibrant community and enrich the lives of all our neighbors – for today and future generations.

Your Legacy will celebrate your life or the life of a loved one with our community and future generations.

We strongly believe in the mission of KACS and are committed that it will continue long after we are gone.

KACS Cypress Legacy’s planned giving offers everyone, regardless of income, the opportunity to leave a lasting Legacy.

As a KACS Cypress Legacy member, you will:

  • Make an enduring impact on our Southern Chester County communities.
  • Sustain an organization that has been serving our most vulnerable neighbors for almost 70 years. 
  • Shape your Legacy by designating KACS or one of our specific programs.
  • Have a meaningful impact on our community, no matter the amount.
  • Maintain your current income.
  • Establish smart tax plans. Bequests can reduce overall estate taxes and protect donor assets.
  • Receive recognition for your generous Cypress Legacy gift.

KACS Cypress Legacy gifts are available through:  

Designating a gift to KACS ni your wil or trust is simple and costs you nothing during your lifetime. Cash, securities, real estate, and tangible property can all be given through a bequest in your will or trust.

Name KACS as the beneficiary of a portion or al of your IRA, 401(k), or other retirement account. When the time comes, the amount designated passes to KACS, and your heirs avoid income and estate tax on that amount.

You can designate KACS as a beneficiary or the owner of a life insurance policy.

There are other creative ways to make planned gifts to support KACS including through a Donor Advised Funds, Charitable Trusts, and Charitable Gift Annuities. Please call Stephanie if you would like to discuss gift options. 

It’s wise to consult with your financial advisor when making a planned gift.
