A Gift in Your Will or Trust

Make A Lasting Impact

A Gift of Retirement Plan Assets

If you would like to include a gift to help children and families through your estate, consider the tax-smart strategy of naming Ronald McDonald House Charities of Southwest Virginia the beneficiary of all or a portion of your retirement plan assets and leaving other less-taxed assets to your heirs. Because of our tax-exempt status, income and estate taxes are eliminated, allowing the full value of your retirement plan assets to make a difference in the lives of children who are sick. 

Charitable Remainder Trust

With a charitable remainder Trust, you create the trust and fund it with assets, such as cash, real estate or appreciated securities. You receive income (either a variable or fixed dollar amount) each year for the rest of your life or for a period of up to 20 years from the trust. At the end of the trust term, the balance in the trust goes to support our mission. 

A Gift of Life Insurance

If you would like to help us support children and families with a substantial gift with little cost to you, a gift of life insurance may be right for you. Find out your charitable options and how to make it work for you.
