If a cash gift is not viable at the present time yet you would like to help children battling cancer in the future, there are a number of options available to you.

All inquiries regarding contributions through planned giving (wills, stocks and property) should be directed to Director of Philanthropy Amy Stone at astone@thenccs.org or 314.446.5221.

Payable on Death Account

A Payable on Death (POD) account is an easy way to keep cash assets out of probate.

A POD directive can be established on a standard account or a certificate of deposit.  It names one or more individual and/or charity as the beneficiary of all funds once the account owner(s) has passed away.

Contact your financial institution for information on establishing a POD account.

IRA – Beneficiary Designations

You can name the NCCS a beneficiary in one of your IRA retirement plans, life insurance policies, investment accounts and commercial annuities. It is simple to establish this type of gift.

  1. Contact your retirement plan administrator, insurance company, bank or financial intuition for a change-of beneficiary form.
  2. Decide what percentage or flat amount you would like the NCCS to receive and include this information along with naming the NCCS as a beneficiary on the form.
  3. Return the completed form to your plan administrator, insurance company, bank or financial intuition.

Please complete and return the Revocable Letter of Intent so we are aware of your gift – and can thank you for your generosity!

Remembering The National Children’s Cancer Society in Your Will

The most popular form of an estate gift is a bequest in your will or trust.  You can indicate a specific amount or a percentage of the balance remaining in your estate for this type of donation.

Charitable bequests are an easy component of any estate plan and offer tremendous flexibility. You can continue to enjoy your assets during your lifetime and no immediate donation is required.

Following are a few of the most common types of charitable bequests with suggested language for naming NCCS as a beneficiary. Feel free to adapt this language to fit your individual situation and/or contact Director of Philanthropy Amy Stone at astone@thenccs.org or 314-446-5221 for assistance.

  • Fixed Dollar Amount Bequest
    I bequeath the sum of $____ to The National Children’s Cancer Society, a Missouri Corporation.
  • Percentage Bequest

  • Residual Bequest
    I bequeath the residue of my estate, after the satisfaction of all specific bequests and payment of all taxes and other costs attending my death to The National Children’s Cancer Society, a Missouri Corporation.

Please complete the Revocable Letter of Intent and return to the NCCS so we are aware of your gift and can thank you for your generosity!
