Make Camp Sunshine Part of Your Estate Planning
Help us to grow our programs and reach even more children by supporting Camp Sunshine through planned giving. Planned giving can be as simple as naming Camp Sunshine as a beneficiary of your will, IRA or life insurance policy - here's how.
One of the easiest ways to make a planned gift is to designate Camp Sunshine as a beneficiary in your will. A bequest may be a specific dollar amount, a certain asset or a percentage of your estate. Your attorney can add a bequest to your will with language as simple as this: "I give __________ Dollars ($_______) to CAMP SUNSHINE, Decatur, Georgia. Camp Sunshine's Federal Tax Identification Number is 58-1872217."
Another way to make a significant contribution is to name Camp Sunshine as a primary or contingent beneficiary of a life insurance policy, or to donate a policy to us that you no longer need. Contact your life insurance company or your agent for a change of beneficiary designation form.
Naming Camp Sunshine as a beneficiary of your Individual Retirement Account, 401(K) or other retirement accounts may provide income and estate tax savings. Your employer's human resources office or the broker or other plan custodian of your IRA can provide you with the change of beneficiary designation to make this gift.
All gifts to Camp Sunshine are tax deductible as allowed by law. Please consult your tax, financial or legal advisor concerning any gift arrangements you are considering.
