Estate Giving

A Gift that will Create a Brighter Future – Through your Estate

Did you know there are ways to support Family Tree Relief Nursery that don't affect your current lifestyle or your family's security?

You can support Family Tree Relief Nursery with gifts that don't impact the way you live by designating Family Tree Relief Nursery to receive estate assets in the future.

The Benefits

  • You can make a gift that costs you nothing during your lifetime.
  • You can make a gift that leaves your cash flow and current financial planning unchanged.
  • You don't have to use cash to make your gift; you can "buy low and give high" by making your gift with appreciated securities instead.

Popular Giving Arrangements

Gifts from Your Will or Trust

Do you need to preserve your assets during your lifetime? You can plan a gift to us that will only take effect after your other obligations have ceased.

How It Works

  • Include a bequest to Family Tree Relief Nursery in your will or trust.  See text below
  • Make your bequest unrestricted or direct it to a specific purpose.
  • Indicate a specific amount, or a percentage of the balance remaining in your estate or trust.


  • Your assets remain in your control during your lifetime.
  • You can modify your gift to address changing circumstances.
  • You can direct your gift to a particular purpose (be sure to check with us to make sure your gift can be used as intended).
  • Under current tax law, there is no upper limit on the estate tax deduction for your charitable bequests.

Gifts from a Retirement Plan

Give us assets subject to double taxation, then leave more to your family.

How It Works

  • Name Family Tree Relief Nursery as a beneficiary of your IRA, 401(k), or other qualified plan.
  • Designate us to receive all or a portion of the balance of your plan through your plan administrator.
  • The balance in your plan passes to Family Tree Relief Nursery after your death.
