Opening a Donor Directed Contribution at the Puerto Rican Cultural Center is a simple, flexible way to manage your charitable giving. You bring your resources and your interest in our programs and community issues, and the Puerto Rican Cultural Center brings more than 42 years of building community rich in struggle.

Leave a Legacy for Social Change
Estate planning is a powerful way to express your values and vision for the future, and to care for your partner, family, and community. In order to ensure that your wishes are carried out,you should have a will.

With proper planning, you can make sure your wishes are fulfilled, possibly lower your estate tax, and also create powerful change. Here are some ways to give:

  • Remember the Puerto Rican Cultural Center in your will. It is important to have a will, because without one, decisions about your estate will be made by the state.

  • Establish a Charitable Trust. Certain trust options may reduce your taxes now or in the future, while benefitting the Puerto Rican Cultural Center. Please check with your financial advisor.
  • Donate Life Insurance. This affords a tax advantage while enabling you to give a larger gift than you might otherwise find possible.
  • Name the Puerto Rican Cultural Center as a Beneficiary of a Retirement Plan. Contact Juan Calderón, Chief Organizational Officer at juanc@prcc-chgo.org or 773-394-4935 if you would like to discuss your any ideas or questions you have about leaving a legacy that will benefit the PRCC.
