Securing the Future
Securing the Future is a bi-annual publication of the CHOC Foundation highlighting estate gifts. It features long-time donors and explains how their charitable gifts have supported the hospital through testamentary gifts, legacy planning, and retirement income planning.

Make Philanthropy A Family Affair
You Believe in Charitable Giving - Have you Shared Your Values?

There are many reasons individuals give to charity. They do it to avoid capital gains tax, provide themselves with a life income stream, diversify their portfolio and possibly to transfer appreciated assets and again avoid the tax penalties that would come along with the direct sales of those assets. Fortunately for CHOC, we have discovered that our family?s philanthropic plans go much deeper than that.

Throughout life you acquire the values that build character, such as generosity, honesty and integrity. How can you share what you?ve learned and pass those values on to loved ones?

Begin by sharing with your family why you give to a particular organization and how you determine your level of support. Be sure to share the positive feelings and inspiration that come from helping others. Once your family has been introduced to your charitable values, ask them to participate in the decision-making process. Decide together which charitable projects should be supported in the future. Perhaps your family will decide to make a gift in honor of a loved one who has passed. Maybe your family wishes to fund a specific project or annual event.

Specific Bequest to the CHOC Foundation:
A specific bequest gives a specific item or specific piece of property to the CHOC Foundation. Such bequests are fulfilled first, before cash and residuary bequests. If the donor disposes of the specified property during his or her lifetime, there will be no bequest to the CHOC Foundation.
