Planned Giving

The Bradford Society honors those who have named Children’s Medical Center Foundation as a beneficiary in their estate plans. Creating your own legacy of giving allows you to make a gift that will provide continued momentum for Children’s Health to conduct high-impact, internationally recognized research through the Children’s Research Institute at UT Southwestern; educate the next generation of medical scientists, clinicians, and health care providers and deliver patient care through more than 927,000 patient visits annually.

A properly structured planned gift can provide for your family’s financial well-being and meet your charitable objectives.  Whether making a gift now and receiving an income for life or providing for loved ones first and then providing for Children’s Medical Center Foundation, planned giving offers many options to you as you plan your legacy.

There are a variety of ways to carry on your legacy through the work at Children’s Health, including:

  • Bequests
  • Charitable Gift Annuities
  • Charitable Remainder Trusts
  • Charitable Lead Trusts
  • Beneficiary Designation of Retirement Plans
  • Life Insurance
  • Retained Life Estate
