  • If you want to contribute time by using your skills, please see our volunteer page.
  • If you want to make a donation by cash, check, or in the form of a stock or bond, or become a member of Caring Advocates at a higher level of contribution, please see below.
  • If you are particularly satisfied with the services that the Caring Advocates staff has provided you, and you wish others with limited resources to have a similar opportunity, and you can offer to pay more than our usual and customary fees, then the balance may be considered as your tax-deductible contribution (consult your accountant or other tax advisor).
  • You can make your contribution directly, now, or by installments in your lifetime, or leave instructions in your will.
  • We can also accept stocks and bonds, but call us for account information.
  • Please check with your tax advisor about a new provision in the tax law that may make it possible for you to contribute from the assets of your IRA that you would otherwise be required to withdraw and pay taxes on, if you are over 70 1/2, that may be tax-deductible.

The Caring Advocates Project is a 501(c)(3) non-profit charitable trust established in March 2000. We are closely affiliated with another division, the Project for Peaceful Transitions, whose mission is to make the transition of dying more peaceful for terminally ill patients and their families by providing six types of support: emotional, relational, musical, legal, pastoral, and spiritual before as well as during their period of hospice eligibility.

As a nonprofit organization, Caring Advocates accepts direct donations and has several levels of memberships, which are described on the next page. The organization also receives a portion of the net profit from the sale of books and informational media on end of life issues that it sells directly by your linking to our publisher's web site, www.LifeTP.com or purchased on such sites as Amazon.com.

If you or your organization would like to contribute to Caring Advocates, use the button below or, if you have already purchased one of our books and wish to get credit, call Sherrie, at 800 64 PEACE

Dr. Terman not only advised my mother about her end-of-life options, he also made her feel secure that she would not have to opt for premature dying to avoid getting stuck in a miserable state like dementia or stroke, in which she could no longer ask for treatment to stop. He called this the “Ironclad Strategy.” I’ll never forget how peaceful I felt as the three of us were “together” as Mom died. I was by her side, holding the phone that now connected my sister to Mom. Without Dr. Terman’s help, I doubt my sister would have ever have been able to make peace with Mom or feel peace with herself after Mom died. She has. We both have. My mother was able to die peacefully in her own bed with the undivided attention of her two closest relatives—her daughters. Who would not want that? I am so grateful that I fortunately found Dr. Terman to help us all attain a peaceful transition.
