Childhood cancer still remains the #1 disease-killer of our children. Each day families are faced with the emotional and financial impacts of this horrific disease and they rely on local organizations like Keaton Raphael Memorial to help. On average, a family whose child has cancer can expect to pay approximately $50,000 for out of pocket expenses during the course of their child’s treatment.
Ways to Give and How You Can Help!
There are several ways you can help. Your generosity will make a direct impact in the lives of local children with cancer and their families. View our Wish List for items that are needed throughout the year to help fill a Hope Chest for each child battling cancer and their family.
We gratefully accept donations of stock, life insurance policies, charitable remainder trusts, gift annuities, or a charitable bequest in a will or trust. Contact us for further details.
Charitable Remainder Trusts
One effective and popular choice for people who wish to leave a lasting legacy to their favorite charity and reap various financial benefits at the same time is the charitable remainder trust. In exchange for a future gift to charity, the charitable remainder trust provides you with several tax and economic benefits. Assets in the trust eventually pass to charity, not to your family. Work with your tax and legal advisors so that a charitable remainder trust, or any other year-end gifting strategy, fits into your overall estate plan.
