Growing Hope

Making a gift by including Child & Family in your long-term financial or estate plan is an important decision that encompasses more than financial goals and tax benefits. It’s about harnessing your passion to make a lasting impact on children and families in need, right here in Rhode Island. Planned gifts provide meaningful support to Child & Family’s programs and services that strengthen and preserve families. Child & Family, with the support of our partner, the Rhode Island Foundation offers a range of imaginative giving strategies that allow you to unleash your inner philanthropist while maximizing tax advantages and financial flexibility. We can help you find the best option to create your legacy.

Why Should You Include a Charitable Gift in Your Will?

  • It’s an easy way to give back to your community through an organization that has long history of making a positive difference in the lives of thousands each and every day.
  • It’s simple to do. It can be as easy as including language stating “I give ten percent of the net value of my estate to Child & Family”.
  • You can change your mind. We won’t receive the gift until after your death. During your lifetime, you can amend anything you choose i.e., beneficiaries, amounts etc.
  • Tax-wise it could be beneficial. Gifts to qualified charitable organizations reduce the value of your estate for estate tax purposes.
