Give a Planned Gift

A living legacy is more than a reflection of who we are. It’s also how we see the world and the lasting impact we desire to make in it.

By including the Foundation in your estate plans, you can help make the dream of family a reality for children waiting in foster care and create a legacy that strengthens families and communities for generations to come.

The Forever Home Society recognizes and honors individuals who:

  • Include a gift to the Foundation in a will or trust
  • Participate in a life income arrangement benefiting the Foundation, such as charitable remainder trust or charitable gift annuity
  • Create a lead trust benefiting the Foundation
  • Name the Foundation as a beneficiary of a retirement plan or life insurance policy

Planned gifts can be donated outright or deferred, and typically come from assets, not income. The Foundation is a public nonprofit exempt from income, gifts and estate taxes under section 501(c)3 of the Internal Revenue Code.


Start planning today to help realize a future in which every child has the love, support and security of a permanent family.

Use our Planned Gift of Record form to declare your intention to make a gift to the Foundation, or contact Jennifer Blank, Senior Director of Development, at or (614) 764-8448 to learn more.
