Gifts of Assets


Asset Giving Options

If you have appreciated stock or mutual funds – or are required to take a minimum annual distribution from your Individual Retirement Account (IRA) – you may be able to offset applicable taxes by making a donation of assets.

Also, some donors choose to plan an “after-lifetime” gift through a will, trust or by making the Receiving Home a beneficiary of an IRA or life insurance policy. We celebrate them as members of our Hope for Healing Legacy Circle.

To discuss the various asset giving options available to you – or if you’d like to let us know that you have included the Children’s Receiving Home in your will, IRA or life insurance policy – please contact legacy@crhkids.org or call (916) 482-2370 ext. 1205.




Memorials and Honor Gifts

At CRH, we understand how much your family members, friends, and co-workers matter to you. After all, our philosophy is that “families matter.”

  • MEMORIALS express your sympathy and respect for the loss of a loved one. CRH will send a thoughtful card to the family of the deceased letting them know of your caring gift.
  • HONOR GIFTS express your admiration and appreciation in honor of someone special or a special occasion. CRH will send an appropriate card to your selected honoree that may be personalized to convey your good wishes: “Happy Birthday,” “Congratulations on Your 25th Anniversary,” or an individual message of your choice.
