Our mission as a community based human service agency and as a vital part in the aging network, is to assist older adults and those responsible for their well being. We are committed to preserving their dignity and enhancing the quality of their lives by providing responsive and innovative programs and services.
Our generous donors make the COA a valuable asset to Cass County. Without these donations we couldn’t provide the much-needed programs at a cost people can afford. Services like Meals on Wheels, Adult Day Service, medical transportation, and more provide care to those in the county. Educational and fitness classes keep both mind and body ﬁt. The COA is here to serve the community but it is with support from donors like you that makes the greatest difference.
Donations may be made in the form of cash, check, credit card, stocks, real estate, insurance or gifts in kind. Gifts can be designated to help specific programs at the COA like Meals on Wheels and Handy Helpers or individual gifts can also be made In Memory of a loved one or To Honor someone who has had an influence on your life.
We appreciate our corporate partners and the opportunity to promote their business when possible. Sponsorship of activities and/or events is also welcome. To learn more about sponsorship opportunities, contact Kelli Casey at KelliC@casscoa.org or (269) 445-8110.
Leave your Legacy. Planned giving is a type of charitable giving that allows you to express your personal values by making a significant charitable gift during your life or at death that is part of your financial or estate plan.
Cass County COA can be named as a beneficiary in your will in a number of ways:
Outright Bequest: You can specify an outright gift of cash, securities, real estate or tangible personal property.
Residual Bequest: Provides that, after specific bequests are made to named individuals, the amount remaining in the estate is left to the Cass COA.
Contingent Bequest: Means that the Cass COA will receive certain assets only if a named individual does not survive you.
Testamentary Trust: Such a trust can provide income for another person or persons for life, with the principal ultimately passing on to the Cass COA.
Codicil: If you already have a valid, up-to-date will, you can have your attorney prepare a Codicil to your will naming the Cass COA as a beneficiary without having to rewrite your entire will.
Life Insurance: Provides another excellent means for making a gift to Cass COA. This can be done either by purchasing a new life insurance policy or by contributing a policy which you currently own, but no longer need.
