Planned Giving


Leave a legacy, remember the Ronald McDonald House Charities of the Central Valley, Inc.

Planned giving is a vital part of the long-term future of Ronald McDonald House Charities of the Central Valley. By remembering RMHC Central Valley in your will or estate plans, you help make sure that we can provide a “home away from home” for future generations. Leaving a charitable gift in your will is an easy and meaningful gesture. No matter how large or small, it is guaranteed to make a difference in children’s lives and support families when they need it most.

There are many forms of planned gifts. Often a planned gift can help you make a more significant gift than you might have otherwise imagined — without sacrificing income or security for your own family

  • Bequest
    A bequest in your will or living trust lets you take care of loved ones first and make a remarkable difference in the lives of others.
  • Retirement Plan Beneficiary
    Naming us as a beneficiary of your retirement plan can help your heirs avoid double taxation while sharing your generosity with our families as well.
  • Life Insurance
    The gift of life insurance transforms a modest investment into a much larger benefit both for you and for the families we serve.
  • Anonymity
    We also respect that some donors prefer anonymity. We would invite you to let us know about your plans on a confidential basis in any case. This helps us plan wisely for the future.
