Did you know there are creative ways to support Ivy Child International? 

Ways in which Ivy Child International, you, and your loved ones can all benefit at the same time?

Such giving options are called “planned gifts,” because with thoughtful planning, you create win-win solutions for you and for Ivy Child. Whether giving through your will, living trust, qualified retirement plan, or life insurance policy, planning ahead is an expression of commitment through a very special and important form of financial support.

Estate Gifts

A charitable gift from your estate is a favored method of giving that enables you to achieve your financial goals and benefit Ivy Child in ways that may not be possible through lifetime gifts.

Retirement Assets

A gift of your retirement assets, such as an employee retirement plan, IRA, or tax-sheltered annuity, is an excellent way to make a gift. A gift of these assets can shield your heirs from taxes while funding Ivy Child’s future.
