  • 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 (647 3223).

Our greatest fear regarding end-of-life decisions: complete strangers can intrude on our most intimate decisions, and worse—make decisions that we would not make for ourselves. Dr. Terman offers a close to ironclad strategy to preserve control at the end of life, even for those individuals who may ultimately suffer from severe brain damage or dementia. Every pitfall has been considered and solved! It also guides families through the chaos that results from inadequate advance care planning. His book is so good that our organization keeps copies at every office. It is a mainstay of the recommendations we provide our clients.”
