Legacy of Love: A Planned Giving Program
There are many ways you can create a lasting legacy that will help us care for seriously ill children and their families. Your Planned Gift ensures that we will have the resources needed to continue our mission for many years to come.
Planned Gifts are generally made through the following means:
Bequest in a Will
The easiest and most common way of making a Planned Gift is through a bequest in your will. You can designate a specific amount of money, a percentage of your estate, or a specific asset.
Life Income Gifts
Gifts such as a charitable annuity, a charitable remainder trust, or a pooled income fund provide you and/or your designated beneficiary income for life. Upon your passing, Ronald McDonald House Charities of Greater Las Vegas receives the gift. Life income gifts generally reduce or eliminate certain taxes and guarantee an income for life.
Life insurance can be used to make a sizable gift to Ronald McDonald House Charities of Greater Las Vegas. You can make our charity the owner and beneficiary of an existing policy you no longer need. Or you can name Ronald McDonald House Charities of Greater Las Vegas as a contingent beneficiary of an existing policy.
Depending on the type of Planned Gift, different assets may be used to fund it. Cash, appreciated securities, appreciated property, or personal property (such as jewelry or art) may also be options.
Check with your financial and legal advisors before making a gift.
