Estate and Legacy Giving

You can forever touch the life of a child by simply including Kids Wish Network in your will or estate plans. When you name Kids Wish Network as a beneficiary, you will create a lasting relationship by sharing in our future and leaving a legacy of hope and joy to some very deserving children.

Becoming a Guardian Angel Legacy Society member is easy – just notify us when you name Kids Wish Network as a beneficiary. If you want to designate a specific purpose, we need you to consult us in advance to make certain that we will be able to carry out your wishes. Your information will be kept confidential and you also have the option to keep your Guardian Angel Legacy Society membership anonymous. Either way, we will be pleased to honor your intent through appropriate recognition.

Perhaps you’ve already included us in your will or maybe you’re planning a bequest to Kids Wish Network. If so, we thank you for your generosity and thoughtfulness. Your support will enable Kids Wish to continue its mission to improve the lives of sick children nationwide.

You can arrange a gift from your estate either by setting aside a specific dollar amount or a percentage of your estate. Many of our caring donors use their wills to give Kids Wish Network something they own, such as a home, art, or jewelry. Others leave a paid life insurance policy or other financial investment, such as stocks, bonds or CDs.

Each of us has a story to tell of how we contribute to our families, to our community and to others. What is your legacy?

Look below to learn about assets most commonly used to make a contribution to Kids Wish Network:

Gifts of Cash
Making a donation of cash is as simple as writing a check or authorizing a charge on your credit card. From your standpoint, it’s no fuss and Kids Wish Network can put your contribution to work without delay.

Gifts of Stocks
Stocks that have increased in value and are held for at least one year are the most popular asset used for a charitable contribution. Making a gift of securities to Kids Wish Network offers you the chance to help our organization while realizing many important tax benefits for yourself.

Gifts of Savings Bonds
Savings bonds are likely the nation’s most widely held appreciated assets, and most have likely stopped growing and are collecting dust, just waiting to be put to good use. A tax-wise use for your appreciated savings bonds is to support Kids Wish Network, a cause you care about!

Gifts of Life Insurance or Retirement Assets
This could be a wonderful way for you to support our work. By designating Kids Wish Network as the beneficiary of your life insurance or retirement assets, you can enjoy some flexibility in your charitable giving as well as certain tax advantages. Kids Wish Network will receive the specified asset upon your death. You also have the option of changing the eventual recipient throughout your life.

Charitable Gift Annuity
A charitable gift annuity provides you and/or your designees with an annual income while creating a permanent legacy after death.
