Ways to Give

Poverty Is a Math Problem. We Can Solve It Together.

For people who live in poverty, It's hard not to think about the math all the time. At the end of the month, many low-income people worry whether there's enough food on the table, money for rent, or heat in their homes during the cold winter months. 

But you can help offer solutions to this math problem by giving to Community Action. Your gift will support our programs and services that help low-income families stay warm all winter, educate children through a curriculum proven to bring future success, and give people the tools they need to lift themselves out of poverty and reach their full potential!

Planned Giving

You can help us reduce the causes of poverty and its impact on society through a planned gift. We offer many types of estate and gift-planning arrangements suited to your individual needs, including:

  • Wills and Trusts
  • Beneficiary Designations
  • Qualified Charitable Distributions from IRA

We highly recommend consulting your personal attorney or financial advisor and sharing your charitable estate plans with them. When making a planned gift to Community Action, we recommend using the following language: 

Specific bequest: “I give, devise, and bequeath to Community Action Partnership of Ramsey and Washington Counties, a Minnesota nonprofit corporation, located at 450 Syndicate Street North, St. Paul, Minnesota, [the sum of $_________ or describe the specific or designated assets].”

Residual bequest: “I give, devise, and bequeath [all or _______ percent (____%) of the rest, residue, and remainder of my estate to Community Action Partnership of Ramsey and Washington Counties, a Minnesota nonprofit corporation, located at 450 Syndicate Street North, St. Paul, Minnesota.”
