Join us in our mission to end domestic violence, sexual assault, and stalking through legacy giving.  

Legacy gifts helps secure the viability of CCS now and in the future so that we can respond to every call for help from individuals traumatized by relationship violence.

Supporting CCS through Planned Giving

There are various ways to make a legacy gift (a.k.a planned gift) to CCS. Legacy gifts are a win-win for you, your family and CCS because through thoughtful gift planning you can combine your desire to donate to CCS with your overall financial, tax, and estate planning goals. Please consult with your professional tax advisor on the best way to include CCS in your estate plan.

When you make a legacy gift to CCS, you become part of our Legacy Circle. Your membership to our Legacy Circle makes you a very special part of the CCS family.  

Your legacy gift will help our survivors at CCS now and for many years to come. Thank you!

For information on legacy giving, please contact Cori Austin, CEO at 858-272-5777 or



“Supporting our community, both today and for generations to come, is important to us. The work CCS does in our community is critical. We want to help to ensure the organization’s stability and longevity in any way we can. By designating CCS for our legacy gift planning, we honor the services it provides to women, children, and families today, and help to ensure that these needs will be met in the future.”
