Allow Us to Say Thank You

We hope you will let us know if you have included a gift to Americares in your will or named us as a beneficiary of an account. We would love to have a chance to say thank you and invite you to join our Macauley Legacy Society.

“We know Americares will be around for a long, long time, bringing better health to communities struggling with poverty and recovering from natural disasters. It’s so satisfying to know we’re making a difference with Americares, and we encourage other people to save lives and improve health by leaving a gift in their will or trust.”
