Children’s Hospital is fortunate to be a designated Children’s Miracle Network (CMN) Hospital. As a CMN hospital, we work with many national partners, such as Wal-Mart, Dairy Queen, Ace Hardware and Credit Unions for Kids to raise funds for our local hospital. CMN funds support our local hospital’s needs such as life-saving medical equipment and patient support programs. We are fortunate to have a broad base of generous supporters who also give through our annual activities like Radiothon and MizzouThon.
MU’s Children’s Hospital has benefitted from major gifts that support facility updates and improvements as well as program support. Gifts to Children’s Hospital impact our patients in countless ways, from those who support pediatric research, to those who have given toys and games so that children can participate in normal play activities even though they are in the hospital, to those who contribute to our Journey’s fund, which provides palliative care to pediatric patients in mid-Missouri with chronic disabling or life shortening illnesses.
A gift to Children’s Hospital can take many forms. Supporters can make an outright gift, charge a gift on Visa, MasterCard or Discover credit card, support Children’s Hospital with an in-kind gift, or make a gift in the form of stocks, bonds or property.
Additional ways you can give include:
Matching Gifts: Most major corporations provide gift matching for employee charitable giving. Check with your human resources representative to see if your employer offers a matching gift program.
Endowments: You can create an endowment with a gift of $25,000 or more that will continue giving in perpetuity, which is just another way of saying "forever!"
Testamentary Gifts: You may leave a bequest to Children's Hospital through a trust or will or as a beneficiary of your retirement account or life insurance policy.
Charitable Gift Annuity: A charitable gift annuity is a simple contractual agreement between you and MU in which you make a gift to Children's Hospital in exchange for our promise to make payments to you for life.
Life Insurance: You may give policies of permanent life insurance to the University. To obtain the greatest tax benefits, make the University both the owner and the beneficiary of your policy.
Retained Life Estate: You may contribute your home to the University even while continuing to live there. The University becomes the sole owner of the property when you move out or at the time of your death.
Please consult with your attorney or tax advisor for legal and tax advice.
