Kord’s Angels Responding & Empowering has been a strong community member in the Ajo since its creation in 2021. As a small nonprofit, every year we carry on the projects started by our namesake, Kord Klinefelter and continue on works that fit his ethos with the help of generous donors such as yourself. It is because of your continued support, and the support of people such as yourself, that Kord’s Angels is able to maintain programs like: Annual School Drives, Trade School Scholarships, Warm Winter Vets, Angel Tree Bikes, Stock the Shelters & Pet Support, 1st Responder Support & Other Community Needs! But what will happen when you are gone?

Making Kord’s Angels your Planned Benefits beneficiary can be as simple as placing Kord’s Angels‘s name on the beneficiary line on any one of the policies listed below:

  • Life Insurance Policy
  • IRA
  • 401 (k)
  • 403 (b)
  • Keogh Account
  • Any other qualified retirement plan

Naming Kord’s Angels as the beneficiary of your life insurance or retirement plan is a simple and smart way to provide for our programs for years to come. When a retirement account is left to a charity such as Kord’s Angels, the organization does not pay the income tax otherwise due if left to a non-spouse family member or a friend. If you no longer need the life insurance that was purchased years ago to provide for your children or other family members, please consider leaving it as a legacy to Kord’s Angels. Every single dollar makes a HUGE impact on the support we are able to provide to the community!
