Legacy Gifts

Change a Child's Life

Imagine that YOU were able to provide a vulnerable child with the tools necessary to achieve success…to make a dream become a reality, against odds that seem insurmountable.

Imagine that your wonderful accomplishment was passed down through generations, met with admiration…a true legacy, of which anyone would be proud. With a planned gift to Children First, you can make this happen.

At Children First, we believe that every child deserves the opportunity to dream big and achieve his or her full potential. With your help, we can make a difference in the lives of the children and families we serve, for years to come.

Some people need a helping hand to get over life’s obstacles, because they are born into families that face unrelenting challenges.

There are many different ways to create your legacy, depending on your personal goals.
Some options include:



By naming Children First, Inc. as a beneficiary in your will, there is no cost during your lifetime, and your estate may avoid costly taxes.

Living Trust

When you establish a Trust and list Children First as a beneficiary, you will make a meaningful gift and avoid probate.

Life Insurance

Have a policy that you no longer need? Name Children First as a beneficiary and make a gift with less out-of-pocket expense.

Real Estate

Deed property to Children First and you may avoid tax fees.

The above are just a few ways to make a significant legacy gift, and there are many more. Consult your estate planning attorney or tax adviser to discuss what will work best for you.
