What is a legacy? It’s a way of being remembered. It’s wanting to know your impact will make a difference that outlives you. Who can you trust to ensure your legacy will continue?
Your legacy belongs in the hands of people who understand fulfilling one. LifeCare Alliance has been fulfilling the legacy of our founder, Catherine Nelson Black, for 125 years to “take care of those no one else pays attention to.”
You can leave a lasting legacy by leaving a gift for LifeCare Alliance through a bequest in your will to ensure our services will continue for another 100 years or more. Your generosity will provide nutritious meals and a daily visit to homebound seniors; pet food and veterinary care for companion pets. You will offer hope through detection and support to clients and families fighting cancer; life-changing resources and community for children with diabetes; and so much more.
Your legacy gift also offers you membership in The Catherine Nelson Black Society, honoring those who have chosen LifeCare Alliance to fulfill their legacy like our founder.
