Planned Giving: Endowing values

Your personal values are literally endowed when you create and fund a named endowment with Akron Children’s Hospital. This is so much more than endowing a program, facilities, or even part of our operational budget.

Your commitment to our mission and ideals will be carried into the future at Akron Children’s for generations to come through your gift.

Consider for a moment your grandchildren and their children. Family members in distant future generations will not have known you, though they will know something important about you through the endowment. Imagine the effect this will have on your family. They will have insight into your generosity, your values, and it could influence them to add to your endowment or perhaps create one of their own.

An endowment doesn’t necessarily require a lump sum gift or even a large sum of money. Some may be surprised to learn that an endowment can be started right away, build up over time, or even receive our ultimate gift through your estate. We work to help you set reasonable objectives for your endowment and to make it convenient.

Many generous donors use endowments as tools to pass their values on to future generations.
