Plan your gift and leave a legacy that transforms the lives of foster youth for generations to come.

Make your legacy last. With a planned gift to Together We Rise, you can combine your desire to give with your overall financial, tax, and estate planning goals. Your legacy commitment is an investment to make the foster care experience better for the 430,000 children going through it.

A Gift In Your Will

You can designate a specific amount or leave a percentage of your estate to further Together We Rise's impact. We've partnered with Freewill to help you create a will if you don't have one already.

Appreciated Stock

By gifting appreciated stock, you can receive a charitable income tax deduction for the full fair market value of the securities and may avoid capital gains taxes on appreciated stock. Visit Freewill to make your gift of stock.

Beneficiary Designations

Your retirement plans, life insurance policies, living trust investments and annuities can all help to improve the lives of youth in foster care.

Qualified Charitable Donations

If you are 70½ or older, you can give up to $100,000 per year from your IRA without any income tax implications.

We have answers.

With the support of your planned giving, we are able to help children in foster care nationwide. Our team is happy to help answer any questions you may have. If you have already included Together We Rise in your planned giving, please let us know!
