The National Kidney Foundation of Illinois has been very fortunate to receive gifts from people who graciously include the foundation in their estate planning. We rely on the generosity and future-mindedness of our supporters to help us continue our excellent services and programs long after we are gone.
The only way to ensure that your personal wishes are carried out upon your death is to have an estate plan. Once you have provided for your loved ones, we hope you will consider a bequest to the National Kidney Foundation of Illinois. Your bequest, whatever its size, will help fulfill our mission, which is to prevent kidney and urinary tract diseases, improve the health and well-being of individuals and families affected by these diseases, and increase the availability of all organs for transplantation.
Besides ensuring that the people and causes you care about benefit from your estate as you wish, estate planning has many additional advantages for most people, including:
- Reducing your estate taxes
- Allowing you to make more generous charitable gifts than you might have thought possible
- Providing you with a life income stream
- Providing a current income tax deduction
- Helping you reduce or avoid capital gains tax
- Giving you a way to support the vital work of the NKFI
Please contact us at 312-321-1500 for more information on giving and including the NKFI while planning for your future.
The National Kidney Foundation of Illinois always encourages you to seek professional legal, estate planning and financial advice before deciding on a course of action.
