Legacy Giving

Create a legacy so your generosity continues to have an impact for generations to come. By making a charitable bequest, you can help ensure children in foster care will have strong advocates for years to come. Legacy gifts can have significant tax benefits for forward-thinking donors and your heirs. By including Child Advocates of Placer County in your estate planning, you can make a legacy gift that may not be possible during your lifetime. Bequests in any amount can be unrestricted or designated for a specific purpose.

Here is sample wording for you and your attorney to consider when including a bequest in your estate: “I give to Child Advocates of Placer County, a nonprofit organization (IRS EIN #77-0620948), the sum of $_________ [or property described herein].”

Aside from a simple will or estate designation, there are other options for Planned Giving, including a charitable gift annuity, a charitable lead trust, or a life insurance policy. Always check with your estate attorney or financial advisor for additional information.
