Legacy Giving

Leave a Lifesaving Legacy: You Can Provide Health and Hope for Future Generations

In 2023 alone, with your support, we brought relief to more than 16.4 million people in need around the world. When you join our Health & Hope Legacy Society, you can help us continue this important work by making it a part of your legacy, ensuring that your commitment to helping those in need endures today and after your lifetime, and joining with others who have created lasting legacies.

It’s easy to help us continue this work in the years ahead. Here are a few simple, no-cost ways you can use planned giving to ensure your legacy, save lives and relieve suffering for decades to come:

  • Create a legacy gift in your will by setting aside a specific sum or percentage
  • Make a gift of life insurance by naming International Medical Corps as a beneficiary in your policy
  • Leave a gift of a percentage of a retirement account by naming International Medical Corps as a beneficiary

How would you like to be remembered?

Whether helping International Medical Corps respond to global crises or sustaining our efforts to help communities move from relief to self-reliance, your legacy gift can last beyond your lifetime and secure our future efforts.

Individual Retirement Account rollovers

It’s easy to support International Medical Corps with distributions from your individual retirement account (IRA). A qualified charitable distribution (QCD) is sometimes called an IRA charitable rollover. It can be counted toward your yearly required minimum distribution (RMD) for up to $100,000 if you are 72 or older, and is a direct transfer of funds from your IRA to a qualified charity. The QCD is excluded from your taxable income.*

*Please consult your legal and/or financial advisor for guidance on IRS rules and restrictions, and your particular circumstances.
