Leave a Legacy
Make your legacy gift today and continue to change lives in the future!
LCFS gratefully accepts gifts made through the planned giving of individuals who were touched by our mission. Your generous legacy gift will ensure that LCFS can continue to provide all of God’s children with the opportunity for safe, healthy and meaningful lives. You will help offer a circle of support to the children and families LCFS serves for years to come.
Gifts can be made through:
A Gift in Your Will
Whether you designate a specific amount or leave a percentage of your estate, your legacy gift will support LCFS’ continued work.
Some sample wording is: I hereby give, devise and bequeath the sum of $[ ] or [ ] percent to Lutheran Child and Family Services of Illinois, a nonprofit organization located at One Oakbrook Terrace, Suite 501, Oakbrook Terrace, IL, 60181, Federal Tax ID #36-2167778, for Lutheran Child and Family Services of Illinois’ general use and purpose.
Your retirement plans, life insurance policies, and annuities can all help LCFS continue to support children and families.
Donating certain non-cash assets like real estate can provide significant tax benefits while advancing our mission.
