Most of us don’t like to talk about it, but there are a few truisms in life – death and taxes. Wouldn't it be great to know that your legacy will be remembered and that your estate may be taxed less with an estate contribution to Childhelp?

Including Childhelp in your estate plan will not only assist you in reaching and achieving your own philanthropic and charitable giving goals, but it will also allow Childhelp to continue its mission of preventing and treating child abuse and neglect.

There are many charitable planned giving options available to you. For example, you can make a planned gift to Childhelp by naming Childhelp as a beneficiary of your last will and testament, life insurance policy or retirement plan.

You can also name Childhelp as a beneficiary of a charitable trust. Your attorney or financial advisor can advise you of the various types of charitable trusts and assist you in establishing a trust that is tailored to your personal needs.

Some of the above-mentioned planned giving strategies may have a greater tax benefit to you than others, so please consult with your attorney or financial advisor on which strategy would work best for you.

Below please find examples of specific language that you may use to name Childhelp as a beneficiary of your will, trust, life insurance policy, retirement assets, or other contractual gift. If you, your attorney or financial advisor has any questions, please do not hesitate to contact the Childhelp Development Department by calling 480-922-8212 or by emailing info@childhelp.org.
