Leaving Your Legacy

Our Roots Run Deep

The Children’s Institute has provided expert care to children and their families for over 120 years, continuously evolving to meet the dynamic needs of the community. Our legacy of care has been possible thanks to the generous philanthropic support from donors like you. We are immensely grateful for the unwavering generosity that enables us to serve every child and their family, regardless of their financial circumstances.

Charitable gift planning allows many to make gifts that might not otherwise be possible in their lifetime, while also realizing tax benefits - protecting wealth for your family while supporting the children we serve.

The Children’s Institute Foundation’s Advancement team welcomes the opportunity to speak with you about how you can support our work through a range of planned giving options.
