“THE TRUE MEANING OF LIFE IS TO PLANT TREES, UNDER WHOSE SHADE YOU DO NOT EXPECT TO SIT”
– NELSON HENDERSON
A planned gift is a contribution made during the lifetime, or upon the death of a donor, usually as part of their financial or estate plans. These gifts can take on many different forms (many of which are detailed below), and can often be used to help meet your current financial goals.
Taking the step to make such a gift usually requires much forethought, and the assistance of your financial or legal professional.
By making a planned gift to the Children’s Dyslexia Centers, you are leaving a legacy with the potential to impact multiple generations to come. You can start along the path of making a planned gift by reaching out to our development office:
PO Box 519

At the most basic level, you can leave a planned gift with the Children’s Dyslexia Centers by naming us in your will or in various kinds of trusts.
When you donate by way of a Gift Annuity, you gift a sum of cash, securities or other assets to the Dyslexia Centers, and in exchange we make regular payments to you or a loved one for the length of your life.
Consider naming the Children’s Dyslexia Centers as a beneficiary of a an insurance policy or a retirement account (such as a 401-K or IRA).
The world of planned giving is very complex, and there are many tools at your disposal to help you make an impact in a way that is right for your situation. If you are unsure of the best path for your financial future, reach out to our office and/or your financial professional for assistance and more information!
