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.
