We believe character shapes our legacy.
Leave your mark.
Planning a future gift to Character.org is a great way to help guarantee that our work will continue for future generations. Whether you designate a specific amount during your lifetime or leave a percentage of your estate, your donation will be deferred while providing significant tax advantages.
Another option for donors is to consider a gift to our Endowment Fund, established years ago by board member Dick Pieper and our founder, Sandy McDonnell.
*Kindly inform us of any gifts to Character.org in your will.
3 Ways to Give
Cash or Non-Cash Assets
Donating cash, securities, or other non-cash assets like real estate can provide significant tax benefits.
Your retirement plans, life insurance policies, and annuities can include Character.org.
Qualified Charitable Distributions
Charitable income and remainder trusts provide many options for donors with significant and immediate tax advantages. If you are 70½ or older, you can also give up to $100,000 per year from your IRA while avoiding any income tax implications.
