One of the easiest and most common ways for you to support Rady Children's is with a gift of cash. You may make your gift of cash in the form of:
An outright gift. By making a cash gift by check, credit card or money order today, you enable us to meet our most urgent needs and carry out our mission on a daily basis. You will have the opportunity to see your generosity in action and will also receive a federal income tax charitable deduction, when you itemize.
A payable on death (POD) account. A POD bank account or certificate of deposit names one or more persons or charities as the beneficiary of all funds once you, the account owner, pass away. The beneficiary you name has no rights to the funds until after your lifetime. Until that time, you remain in control and are free to use the money in the bank account, change the beneficiary or close the account.
A gift in your will or living trust. Through a gift in your will or living trust, you can support Rady Children's with a specific amount of money or a percentage of your total estate. This type of gift allows you the flexibility to change your mind at any time.
A charitable gift annuity. This type of gift supports Rady Children's while providing you and/or a loved one with fixed payments for life. One of the most common ways to fund a charitable gift annuity is with cash, but other assets may be used as well. A charitable gift annuity typically works well for those 60 and older.
A charitable remainder trust. Cash is the simplest way to fund a charitable remainder trust. Oftentimes, it can also provide the necessary liquidity for income payments to the beneficiary.
A charitable lead trust. You may always use cash to fund a lead trust. Oftentimes, lead trusts are funded with cash in addition to stock or real estate.
A donor advised fund. A gift of cash through check or credit card is one of the easiest ways to contribute to a donor advised fund. You receive a federal income tax charitable deduction equal to the amount of your cash contribution, when you itemize.
Memorial and tribute gifts. If you have a friend or family member whose life has been touched by Rady Children's, consider making a gift to us in his or her name.
An endowed gift. You can create an endowment - or contribute to an existing endowment - to ensure that your support of Rady Children's will last forever.
Submit a few details and see how an outright gift can meet some of our most pressing needs.
