The truth of the matter is: you can create a great legacy, and inspire others, by giving it to philanthropic organizations. – Michael Bloomberg
The Golden Eagle Society is a major donor initiative for friends of Carolina Raptor Center (CRC) that look to leave their legacy by supporting CRC’s efforts to conserve raptors through education outreach, research, and rehabilitation. By making a Planned Gift to CRC, you will join the growing flock that is The Golden Eagle Society!
Over the past few years, planned gifts—like bequests and beneficiary designations of retirement assets—have become an increasingly important source of support, guaranteeing CRC will have robust resources to conserve precious birds of prey into the future. In response to increased demand, CRC created The Golden Eagle Society to recognize members who have included Carolina Raptor Center in their estate plans. Despite popular belief, you do not have to be wealthy to make a planned gift—you can give cash, real property, retirement assets and insurance policies.
Planned giving gives you the flexibility to determine how you want to support CRC’s vibrant future. You can make an unrestricted gift or underwrite one of our existing program areas—avian medicine, STEM (science, technology, engineering, math) education, or raptor food to name a few.
In addition to ensuring the future stability of CRC, you will receive the following member benefits:
