Ways to Support the Sacramento Children’s Home

Make a Recurring Gift

Committing to a recurring gift is the best way to demonstrate your investment in ending child abuse and neglect and giving children and families a better tomorrow. Consider making a recurring gift that can be deducted from your credit card, debit card or checking account weekly, monthly or quarterly. By making a recurring gift, you can spread out your contribution while making a major impact in the life of a child.

Becoming a Partner for a Better Tomorrow is Easy!

  • You choose the amount and desired interval for your gift
  • We charge your credit card, debit card or checking account at the interval you choose
  • You receive our continuous appreciation and the knowledge that you are helping to break the cycle of abuse and neglect in our community and giving children a chance for a better tomorrow – today and every day!

Consider a Legacy Gift

Your Legacy is Our Future – Leave a legacy of hope for a child through Legacy Giving

To serve our community’s most vulnerable children and families, the Sacramento Children’s Home relies almost entirely on charitable gifts from donors like you. With a legacy gift, your generosity can provide a lasting legacy that sustains us and helps us plan for another 150 years.

Legacy giving involves providing for a future gift through your financial and estate plans. There are numerous ways to arrange this, and many of them protect your assets, entitle you to tax deductions and/or offer a source of income for you and/or your family. You can even make a significant and lasting impact at no cost during your lifetime with a charitable bequest under your will.

Open the door to a better future—for yourself, your family, and SCH—by considering a legacy gift today.

We encourage any donors interested in creating a lasting legacy for SCH to consult an estate attorney or their financial advisor when considering a legacy gift.
