Bacoa Legacy Society

We’re all aging, and as our older adult population grows so too will the need for Bacoa. By making a planned legacy gift to Bacoa, you’re helping your family, friends, and community navigate aging for generations to come by supporting Bacoa’s full range of social services, intergenerational activities, and educational opportunities.

It is now easier than ever to give back to your community and leave a lasting legacy. Contact Bacoa at 847-381-5030 to inform us of any planned giving and become a member of Bacoa’s Legacy Society. Planned giving options may include the following.
