How You Can Help
Name Children’s Health Fund in Your Will
If you already have a will, you can easily update the language to include the Children’s Health Fund through a simple codicil, without the need for executing a new will.
The full amount of a bequest or testamentary gift is deductible from a taxable estate. Bequests, testamentary gifts, or qualified pension plans should specify the terms of your will, trust, or beneficiary designation form, and we recommend you always consult an attorney.

There are three main types of bequests:
A percentage bequest is a bequest of a certain percentage of your estate or of another asset.
Example: “I give, bequeath, and devise (state percentage amount) to Children’s Health Fund, a qualified 501(c )(3) charitable institution, located in New York, NY, to be used for its general purposes.”
A residual bequest is a bequest of all or a portion of the remainder or residue of the estate after specific and other bequests have been distributed.
Example: “I give, bequeath and devise (all, or state percentage) of the rest, residue and remainder of property, both real and personal, wherever situated, which I may own or be entitled to at my death, to Children’s Health Fund, a qualified 501(c )(3) charitable institution, located in New York, NY, to be used for its general purposes.”
A specific bequest is a bequest of a specific item or dollar amount.
Example: “I give, bequeath and devise (state amount or item) to Children’s Health Fund, a qualified, charitable 501(c )(3) charitable institution, located in New York, NY, to be used for its general purposes.”
