Here are the 4 ways that you can give

IRA Qualified Charitable Distribution:

Generally, a qualified charitable distribution is an otherwise taxable distribution from an IRA owned by an individual who is age 701⁄2 or over that is paid directly to a qualified charity. You may designate Child and Family Charities as the recipient of this distribution directly.

Provide for a Bequest in your Will or your Trust:

You may choose to include a gift of a specific dollar amount or a percentage of your assets. You may add a bequest through a simple codicil or amendment naming Child and Family Charities.

Your Retirement Plan:

Simplify matters for your loved ones and designate Child and Family Charities as the beneficiary of all or part of what remains in your retirement accounts, leaving more tax-favored assets to your heirs.

Life Insurance:

Turn Life Insurance into a lasting legacy by making Child and Family Charities the beneficiary of all or part of life insurance policies.

"The impact this legacy has on the children of Michigan is changing the future of children—not every child is lucky enough to grow up having a roof over their heads, a home, a safe place to grow and learn. That is why leaving this legacy is so important to me."

Judy Foley, Owner, Balance Concierge


"I have been involved with Child and Family Charities for years and I want
to see the good work continue for many years to come."

Gail Kleine, Board of Directors Emeritus
