Planned Giving

You can help plan for your future and secure the future for the children in our own community through your own estate. Making a planned gift allows Child and Family Services to keep striving to meet the needs of the community and provide life changing services to the at risk clients we serve on a daily basis.

There are many options available to you in Child and Family Services’ Planned Giving Program that are mutually beneficial to both you, as the donor, and to the agency. Through planned giving, a donor contribution may be made in the form of a bequest, a charitable gift annuity or a gift of property or life insurance policy in which Child and Family Services is named as the beneficiary. When making a planned gift in advance, you can provide income for you and your family depending on the type of gift you make and the income tax deduction you receive.

A bequest is the most common form of planned giving. By naming Child and Family Services in your will, you are ensuring that a child in our community who is in need of mental health counseling will receive proper medical care; women who live in abusive homes will be able to seek refuge at Child and Family Services’ Haven House; and children awaiting a safe and loving home will be paired with a foster parent willing to welcome a young one as a part of their new family. Any amount of a bequest is greatly appreciated and will help secure Child and Family Services’ future in providing for over 15,000 clients in the Western New York community.
