Planned Giving

Leave a Lasting Legacy

By including NCC in your estate plans, you can ensure all who need mental health care can get it, regardless of faith or finances. There are many ways to leave a legacy, including putting NCC in your will, making the Center a beneficiary of a life insurance policy or an IRA, or creating a charitable lead trust. We’d love to welcome you to our Legacy Circle!

Once you have made a decision about a planned gift, you can send a short Declaration of Support to NCC. This allows us to properly thank you for your generosity and enroll you in our Legacy Circle.

Workplace Giving

Some employers offer easy giving through payroll deduction.  Some will even match your donation, up to doubling your gift.  Ask your company’s human resources office, personnel department or community relations office if they have workplace giving and matching gift programs in place.
