Leave a bequest

Remember CIFAR in your will and let your commitment to a better world live on. A Charitable Bequest is a direction in a donor’s will that instructs their executor(s)/trustee(s) to leave one or more of their assets to CIFAR. A Charitable Bequest is a meaningful way to reduce taxes, increase inheritances to loved ones and make a difference.
