Planned Giving

Planning a legacy gift is a wonderful way to let your commitment to children reach well into the future. Not only does a legacy gift help us meet the needs of children who are fighting devastating illnesses like cancer and heart disease, it also provides hope for the countless others whose lives depend on scientific discovery. Your gift can make a real difference in the lives of children.

The Carillon Society

The Carillon Society recognizes those who have ensured a bright future for children’s health through a bequest or other planned gift.

Like the Carillon, a landmark on the campus of the Nemours Children’s Hospital, Delaware, your gift will resonate through the years, helping to ensure that funds will be available to bring the very best services to the children who need them most.

A simple way to make a planned gift is through your will. You may designate a specific amount or a percentage of your estate to benefit Nemours. To learn more, please contact Mary Hopkins of the Nemours Fund for Children’s Health at 302-651-4401.

How to Join

The following types of commitments, confirmed in writing and subject to certain restrictions, qualify you for membership in the Carillon Society:

  • a gift made in your will or revocable trust
  • a gift of retirement plan assets such as an IRA, 401(k) or 403(b)
  • a life-income gift
  • a gift of life insurance

If you have already included Nemours in your will or with another planned gift, we hope you will let us know by filling out the Confidential Statement of Bequest Intention.  Your membership in The Carillon Society encourages others to follow your good example. We acknowledge and respect those who wish to remain anonymous.

Benefits of Membership

We have chosen a few simple ways to recognize your gift commitment. Each new member will receive a letter of thanks from David J. Bailey, MD, MBA, President and Chief Executive Officer of Nemours, along with a handsome recognition gift which we hope you will treasure for years to come.

In addition to these small expressions of gratitude, we hope you will allow us to recognize you as a member of the Carillon Society in our Annual Report to Donors. Your inclusion in this publication helps encourage others to join this important effort. As a member of the Carillon Society you will be included in the Nemours philanthropic family and invited to events designed to inspire and celebrate our common goal—ensuring a bright future for children’s health.
