Keep Families Close Now and in the Future

With your big heart and a little planning, you can help us bring hope and help to sick children and their families for generations to come.

The power to strengthen and keep families together is in your hands.

Have you considered including Ronald McDonald House Charities of the Ohio Valley, Inc. in your estate plan? Planned gifts are important for the future of our programs because they help us plan ahead and know that we will be able to continue providing essential resources for families of children with critical illnesses. The benefits to our donors are equally important, and many planned giving vehicles offer ways to leave a treasured memory of you and your family for the children and families we will continue to serve.

Make a Lasting Difference

It’s easy.
Helping families can be as simple as adding a sentence to your existing Will or adding Ronald McDonald House Charities of the Ohio Valley on a beneficiary form.

You have flexibility.
Your gift can be a percentage so it remains in proportion to other desires you wish to fulfill. It can also come to our House after your other needs are met.

You have options.
Your gift can be unrestricted or you can choose to help fund a specific program.

Every gift will have a profound impact.
Whether your gift is $500 or $5,000, our families are grateful for every day that they receive the support they need.

There are many ways to consider leaving a legacy…

  • Leave a gift in your Will/Living Trust. Through a bequest, you can make a meaningful difference without affecting your current finances.
  • Consider a deferred gift, annuity, or trust to integrate your charitable gift with your overall financial, tax and estate planning goals.
  • Consider using assets such as stocks, bonds, CDs, mutual funds or real estate as charitable gifts.
  • Encourage others to leave gifts to charities in their wills.

In any charitable bequest, it is important to name the recipient accurately to ensure the funds reach the organization you want them to reach. Please include us as “Ronald McDonald House Charities of the Ohio Valley, Inc.” in your estate plan.
