3 ways to leave your legacy

Leave your legacy

With a little preparation, you can make gifts now to immediately support Children’s Hospital Colorado’s needs, or to take effect in the future as a way to leave your legacy.

Anyone can make a planned gift. Consider these three popular options:

  1. A gift in your will or revocable living trust.
    Work with your attorney to include a few simple sentences in your will or living trust that specify a gift to Children’s Hospital Colorado Foundation. You can change your mind at any time because this gift doesn’t go into effect until after your lifetime.

  2. A gift of your retirement plan assets.
    By naming Children’s Hospital Colorado Foundation as the primary beneficiary for a percentage (1–100) of your account’s final value, you can make a tax-wise gift to support healthier futures for kids.

  3. A gift of your bank or brokerage account.
    By placing a “payable on death” or “transfer on death” designation on your bank or brokerage account, you can name our organization to receive the funds.*

Contact Ashley Buderus at 720-777-1763 to learn more about the benefits of planned gifts.

*State laws govern payable on death accounts and transfer on death accounts. Please consult with your bank representative or investment advisor if you are considering these gifts.
