Planned &
Deferred Gifts

Future Giving for Future Needs

Planned and deferred gifts to Family & Children Services allow donors to impact families and children in our community well beyond their lifetime. In many cases, planned giving provides helpful financial benefits to the donor through tax incentives.

As part of a thoughtful, comprehensive estate plan, gifts to Family & Children Services provide a way to complete a lifetime of giving or make a significant gift that was not possible during one’s lifetime.

Planned and deferred gifts include:

  • Bequests.
  • Retirement assets, including individual retirement accounts (IRAs), 401K, and Keogh plans.
  • Gifts of securities and property.
  • Life insurance.
  • Charitable lead trusts.
  • Life Income Gifts such as charitable gift annuities, charitable remainder trusts, and pooled income funds.

As always, Family & Children Services encourages you to consult with your attorney, accountant, or other professional advisor to confirm the financial benefits of a planned gift, review any legal document associated with a gift, and determine its appropriateness in the context of your personal financial circumstances.


“My family and I would like to thank you so very much for the donations. Because of your generosity, we still have our apartment to call home. Times have been so very hard the past year with the lack of work and the cold winter. I, as a father, haven’t been able to provide a steady enough income for my family. We thank you all so very much! You’ve shown, in more than words, how important it is to give.”
