Make A Planned or Deferred Gift.

Planned 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 breaks. A gift to Family & Children Services that is part of a thoughtful, comprehensive estate plan provides a way to complete a lifetime of giving or to make a significant gift that was not possible to make during your lifetime.
Planned gifts include:

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

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, to review any legal document associated with a gift, and to determine its appropriateness in light of your personal financial circumstances.
