How can I learn about donating my estate?
Bequests are donations that are made through a will or a living trust. You can name the Children of Fallen Heroes as a beneficiary in your will/estate for a specific amount or a percentage (see form below) or designate the foundation as a beneficiary of your life insurance policy. Children of Fallen Heroes suggests consulting a legal professional before drafting a will or trust.
The Children of Fallen Heroes must be named as the owner and beneficiary of the insurance policy for it to be tax-deductible.
The following are examples of sample bequest language:
"I bequeath $X.00 to the Children of Fallen Heroes directed towards the organization's area of greatest need." or "I bequeath X% of my estate to the Children of Fallen Heroes for the STEM programs."
