Would you like to leave a meaningful legacy in your community? There are a variety of ways to provide now or in your estate plans for a gift to TBCF that will leave an enduring legacy for families with children who have cancer. When you make a planned gift to TBCF, you gain the personal satisfaction of helping children with cancer while advancing your own financial goals.


Gifts of real estate and stocks or an IRA rollover gift can be added to the TBCF endowment now to help sustain our programs and services. Planned gifts for the future include simple bequests in wills and trusts, designations in IRAs and insurance policies, and charitable remainder trusts that can pay you income for your life and that of your spouse. Learn more about these various gift options.


When you make a current endowment gift or a commitment to a future legacy gift, you will be recognized as a member of the TBCF Legacy Society, which recognizes our most visionary supporters. Find out why other TBCF supporters have chosen to make a legacy gift by reading their donor testimonials.


Your gift will make a difference and our team is here to help. We’d love to hear from you!


Planning your estate and charitable legacy for future generations takes careful evaluation and planning. We can help! Discussing your charitable intentions with us early in the process can lead to a much better result than acting alone---and will ensure that your gift is used in accord with your intentions.


We have a planned giving consultant and estate planning specialists on our committees who can answer your general questions and provide additional information on any of the legacy giving options described on our web pages.


Act now to make thoughtful plans that will meet your individual and family needs, while also helping future generations of families with children who have cancer. We welcome your call today to begin the conversation about how you’d like to leave a legacy to help children
