Many supporters of The Redwoods have decided to make a legacy gift. By joining the Legacy Circle, you will ensure that seniors in Marin receive the best housing, care, and services—regardless of their income—for many years to come.

"My life has been blessed, and the more you give, the more comes back to you. I can think of no better place than The Redwoods to leave a significant gift." --Claire McAuliffe, Legacy Circle member

Choosing the right planned gift depends on your personal circumstances and financial goals. The donation of a legacy gift can fulfill your philanthropic wishes and cost nothing during your lifetime. Best of all, you and your loved ones benefit from present-day gift planning. There are significant tax benefits, but more than that, you can support the future of causes that are close to your heart today. Your support through a planned gift will transform the lives of seniors for generations to come.

Please consult with your legal and financial advisers when considering a planned gift.

Non-probate assets

Do you have an IRA, 401(k), life-insurance policy, or any other assets not included in your will? If so, these are called non-probate assets, and you must plan your beneficiaries for them separately. Use this online tool to make your plans and designate The Redwoods as a beneficiary of one or more of these assets.
