Leaving a Legacy of Love for Tomorrow’s Families in Need

You can help tomorrow’s families find love, hope and respite by making a bequest in your will or estate plan for the Ronald McDonald House of Chapel Hill. Ronald McDonald House of Chapel Hill can help you and your financial advisors develop a planned gift that meets your philanthropic and financial goals. Consider the following options:

Remembering us in your estate plan or last will and testament allows you to donate any gift of your choosing to the Ronald McDonald House of Chapel Hill. Whether you bequest your money, belongings, or a percentage of your estate, you can assist future RMH of Chapel Hill children in need while bypassing potential estate and income taxes. Below is some sample language to include in your will.
A life insurance policy that you own but no longer need can make a practical gift to the RMH of Chapel Hill. Whether you choose to name us as beneficiary or owner of your life insurance, you will eliminate any taxes on the policy.

Most retirement plan assets face double taxation. Any assets that were funded with pretax dollars and remain in a retirement plan may be hit with both estate and income taxes. Rather than burden your family with the prospect of double taxation, you can name RMH of Chapel Hill your beneficiary. As a non-profit, RMH of Chapel Hill does not pay income tax on retirement plan distribution.
Deciding what to do with your real estate can be a complicated undertaking. A donation of property that you no longer have a need for makes a generous and tax-friendly gift.
A gift of money or property can be made to the Ronald McDonald House of Chapel Hill’s Endowment for the ongoing support of our families.
