Join the Brighter Future

Legacy Circle

As a leader in the field of child and family well-being, NWCF ensures that your legacy gift makes the most significant impact possible. There are several options for making your legacy gift to NW Children’s Foundation:

List NWCF as a beneficiary of your Donor Advised Fund, IRA, 401(k), 403(b), or other retirement or brokerage account, or life insurance policy.

Make a bequest in your will or living trust naming NWCF as the recipient of a testamentary gift. 

We recommend that you talk to your financial advisor or lawyer about crafting or modifying the language in your will. See below for sample bequest language.  

We would love to know if you are making a legacy gift to NW Children’s Foundation. 

Please fill out our Legacy Gift Intention Form or contact us at the email or phone number below, so we can formally welcome you into the Brighter Future Legacy Circle.
