Planned Giving & Bequests
Much of the fundraising we do focuses on our current needs and our supporters’ current philanthropic priorities. But longer-term contributions — including planned giving and bequests — are also essential to our continued ability to fight for child welfare reforms on behalf of abused and neglected children throughout the nation.
There are several ways of making a bequest to Children’s Rights:
- Specific bequests, as their name implies, enable you to bequeath an amount of your choice, usually in the form of a cash distribution.
- Residuary bequests allow you to leave a remainder or percentage of your estate to Children’s Rights.
- Contingency bequests make your gift contingent on special circumstances.
If you’re interested in remembering Children’s Rights in your will — or learning more about the many other ways of supporting our work — please contact Walter Illy, deputy director of development, via email or at 212.683.2210.
