How you can help provide equitable care for generations to come.
We live in a country where healthcare is not evenly accessible—and there is no overnight fix. HIV care is a clear example of the inequality that exists. Caracole works every day to counter this by acting as a relentless force for health equity. We are here and will continue to be here for those who need us. And you can too. Learn more about different legacy gift options available that can help you preserve the future of Caracole’s mission and long-term stability.
The pillars of our mission—prevention, housing and care—are all-encompassing in the fight against HIV. For nearly four decades, Caracole has grown not only in mission, reach, and service, but also in strategy; doing our best to establish best practices as we learn new ways of supporting those living with and at risk for HIV. As an organization, Caracole is committed to the growth and change necessary to stay relevant for those we serve and be the expanding, safe space that our name implies.
If you want to make a significant gift but don’t want to part with funds today or have assets you no longer need, we have several simple solutions.
Wills or Trusts
Make a bequest by naming Caracole in your will or trust. If your documents are already in place you can add an addendum to a trust or a codicil to your will.
You can name Caracole as the beneficiary of a retirement plan, life insurance policy, bank or investment accounts and real estate. Giving retirement plan assets to charity and other assets to your loved ones may mean your loved ones get more.
How to make your gift:
To name Caracole as a beneficiary, contact your retirement plan administrator, insurance company, bank or financial institution for a change-of-beneficiary form and include this information: Caracole, Cincinnati, Ohio Taxpayer Identification Number: 31-1210524.
Then notify us so we can thank you for your gift!
Please note: gifts can be for general purposes or may be restricted. If restricted, describe any restrictions and include the following: “The Board of Directors of Caracole, in its sole discretion, may modify the purposes of this gift if those purposes become obsolete, impractical or inconsistent with the mission of Caracole.”

Take action for positive outcomes in our communities!
Our vision for health equity requires action for change. We champion causes to eliminate negative impact and stigma around HIV and to find new solutions to improve lives in our community and beyond.
Help stock our personal care item pantry!
Having access to proper hygiene and cleaning products is essential to overall healthy living. For people living with HIV, maintaining overall health is imperative.
Personal care items like toothpaste or toilet paper cannot be purchased with EBT cards/food stamps. With the majority of our clients living with less than $15K a year, we collect donations of the items listed to distribute to our clients in need.
At Caracole, we are committed to preserving dignity for everyone we serve. As simple as it may sound, your donation of these items is an important contribution in making this happen. Thank you!
