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.”
