Planned Giving in Support of Smile Train

The giving vehicles that allow you as a Smile Train donor to make larger gifts than you could make from your regular income are collectively called planned giving, which is sometimes referred to as gift planning. Some planned gifts provide life-long income to the donor and their heirs, while others use estate and tax planning techniques to provide for charity and their heirs in ways that maximize the gift and/or minimize its impact on the donor's estate. What they have in common is that they are ideal ways for you to continue and possibly increase your support of Smile Train, and help even more of the world’s poorest children suffering from unrepaired clefts.

Our Smiles for Life Society recognizes benefactors who have created a legacy of support for Smile Train through a bequest provision in their will or other planned gift to sustain and enhance Smile Train’s lifesaving and life-changing cleft repair programs around the world.

Planned gifts may allow you to:

  • Make a larger charitable gift to Smile Train than you thought possible and create a legacy of support.
  • Structure a gift that provides for your future financial support and that of your spouse and family.
  • Reduce estate costs of your heirs.
  • Reduce your current year income tax.
  • Avoid or minimize capital gains tax on appreciated assets.
