Why Bequeath to CohoUS
Has living in cohousing enhanced your life?

Making arrangements now to leave a portion of your estate to CohoUS is a positive way to impact the future of cohousing. Meet with your planner and discuss gifting through your will or living trust; and learn how these gifts can reduce your estate tax for your beneficiaries. You may earmark your gift for specific projects such education or advocacy.

We would like to honor you as someone who has arranged for a legacy gift, please contact me for further information. karincohous@gmail.com
