Compassionate Giving with the Help of New York Life

25th of July 2020


What is a Planned Gift?

Planned Giving are gifts (or donations) that are planned by the donor now and will benefit the Children’s Foundation of America at a later date. They include trusts, legacy gifts and life insurance. Just as you plan for your family’s current and future needs, the Children’s Foundation of America also plans for the needs of foster children we currently serve, as well as those we will help in the future. Through a series of articles, we would like to introduce you to Planned Giving and the benefits to you and to the Foundation.

We are partnering with New York Life to educate our supporters on the benefits of life insurance as a Planned Gift. Agent Lorena Garcia, in conjunction with New York Life, has prepared an article that will introduce you to the benefits of life insurance as a donation option. We encourage you to contact her with any questions or reach out to your own agent or lawyer to discusses the process. Thank you for your lasting support and considering children in need for years to come.

Leave a Lasting Legacy

We live in a world that focuses on passing material provision, but passing on values is just as vital. They are all part of the legacy you will leave for future generations. Imagine how the world might be different generations from now if we continued to walk in honoring values. We believe generosity and philanthropy are the foundations for enduring legacies.
