There are many options for including myFace in your estate planning.
Here are some ways that you can designate myFace as a beneficiary:

In Your Will or Trust. A growing number of our donors have worked directly with us to write myFace into their bequests. Some choose to make a charitable gift of a specific amount, others decide that myFace will receive all or a percentage of what they own, and others make myFace a beneficiary of one of their assets. As a special benefit for our supporters, we’ve partnered with our friends at FreeWill so you can use their intuitive, online will-writing tool at no cost to you. The process typically takes no more than 25 minutes from start to finish, and you will be able to leave a bequest to myFace in your will if you so choose.
There are two key benefits in setting up a legacy gift through your Will or Trust »

1. You can change your mind at any time. This type of gift does not go into effect until after your passing, so you have the opportunity to change or revoke your gift at any time while you are alive. Plus, since you’re not actually parting with assets today, you don’t need to worry that you won’t have enough to live on in the future should you need  your assets to cover your living expenses.

2. You can be flexible in your commitment. Most people do not know what the exact size of their estate will be. Therefore, making a gift to  us by using a percentage amount can be a more appropriate way to  divide your assets. It allows you to benefit myFace and loved ones in relative proportion.

Even a gift of 5-10 percent of your estate can make a big difference in the lives of the children and adults we help. When you give an unrestricted, legacy donation – that is, one that is not designated for a specific project or focus – your gift will have the flexibility to help patients and families in many different ways, rather  than having the monies designated for an initiative that may or may  not remain necessary in the future. Rest assured that your legacy will be applied with utmost consideration to make a lasting impact on the craniofacial community.

Through Qualified Charitable Deductions (QCDs), commonly called “IRA charitable rollover gifts.”  If you’re 70.5 or older, consider creating a tax-wise gift from your IRA to support myFace. It means a real-time impact on those with facial differences, and can come with great financial benefits. 

We’ve partnered with FreeWill so you can make a tax-wise gift to myFace by using this free QCD online tool that helps streamline the process and simplify the paperwork.

Other Ways: You can also name myFace as a beneficiary in your life insurance policy, a charitable gift annuity, a donor advised fund, and more.
