Create Your Legacy

Create a Legacy Ensuring Many Lifetimes of Healing

There will always be children needing lifesaving surgical care. Your Legacy Society gift can help World Pediatric Project be ready to respond for decades to come.

A Legacy Society gift is a planned gift most often defined as a gift allocated from retirement or estate assets to be received at a designated future time, often upon the passing of the contributor. A planned gift may be in the form of a bequest, gift annuity, trust, gift of real estate or a life insurance policy. The best approach depends upon you and your family’s goals and specific situation. The chart below provides an overview of some of the most common types of gifts based on contributor goals and the typical benefits associated with each type of gift.
