You can empower children and their families when you partner with ChildFund International. What’s more, you can leave generous gifts now and you may receive tax benefits to enjoy for yourself and your loved ones.
Gift of Cash
One of the most common ways to make a gift to ChildFund International is to write a check, make a gift using a credit card, or donate online.
Stocks & Bonds
This is one of the easiest gifts to give and one of the most useful in accomplishing your philanthropic goals. By transferring your appreciated stocks or bonds, you can make a difference for a child now. Or, the next time you visit your bank, you can name ChildFund International USA (Tax ID: 54-0536100) as the beneficiary of a checking or savings bank account, a certificate of deposit (CD), or a brokerage account. When you do, you’ll take a powerful step toward meeting the basic needs of children living in poverty for generations to come.
A gift of your retirement assets, such as an employee retirement plan, IRA, or tax-sheltered annuity, is an excellent way to make a gift. A gift of these assets can shield you or your heirs from taxes while funding ChildFund International.
Life insurance is a valuable asset for making a charitable gift. You can make a gift of a life insurance policy without diminishing other investments or assets earmarked for family members.
A gift of artwork, coins, antiques, or other personal property can be an excellent way to support ChildFund.
