COAR Peace Mission strives to ensure the maximum amount of your donations go directly to the COAR Children’s Village or other projects approved by the COAR Peace Mission Board of Trustees. Projects that are outside of the COAR Children’s Village (if there are any currently) are described on our website. The COAR Peace Mission’s staff performs a variety of functions that make it easier for donors and sponsors to interact effectively with the COAR Children’s Village. For complete information on how your donated dollars are allocated or for the most recent external financial review, please contact the COAR Peace Mission office.
Additional Ways To Donate
Does Your Company Match?
Thousands of companies match their employees’ charitable contributions. Be sure to contact your human resources department to see if your company will match your donation.
In Lieu of Flowers ~
COAR Peace Mission is a listed charity with legacy.com. Asking that gifts be given for the COAR children in lieu of flowers will ensure your loved one’s legacy. We can supply memorial cards, envelopes, or other materials. We publish all gifts on our website as a lasting tribute.
IRA-QCD ~ IRA Qualified Charitable Distribution, §408(d)(8)
If you are least 70-1/2 years young, you must begin taking IRA distributions. For some types of IRAs you can choose to direct a distribution to a qualified charitable organization, for a qualified charitable purpose, and thereby defer it as income. COAR is ready for this. Please contact your retirement manager or firm to make sure of your own situation.
Our receipt contains the gift details and this language:
“COAR Peace Mission is a charitable corporation under IRS section 501(c)3. Your gift is a qualified charitable distribution (QCD) in accordance with IRS regulations. No goods or services were received in exchange for this gift.”
A DESPERATE PLEA!
Please tell us to expect a gift:
from whom (you), approximately when, the issuing company, the amount.
If a check arrives without your name we cannot find out who gave the gift from the issuer.
Contact our office to request the information you need: our broker, Acct#, DTC#, etc. And thank you!
Planned Giving ~ Remembering the Children in Your Will
By remembering the COAR children in your will you can continue to change lives. We can send you information about including COAR in your estate plans. However, it is as simple as letting your estate planner and heirs know your wishes. Please don’t hesitate to contact us with questions or for advice.

Why can’t I copy and paste this? For security we’ve made this number readable by a person, but not readable by internet bots. Security of your donations, by any means, is our priority.
