​A planned gift makes a powerful statement about what you value most and ​helps ensure that Long Beach children get the therapy & rehabilitative treatment they need to live their lives to the fullest.​


​A simple yet powerful way to make a gift is to name Tichenor Clinic as a beneficiary in your will and trust. A bequest may be for a particular dollar amount of percentage of your estate.

Estate tax savings may be significant.  This gift costs nothing now, you maintain control of your assets during your lifetime and you can change your beneficiaries at any time.

Gifts of Retirement Funds

Qualified retirement plans offer an equally simple opportunity for investing in Tichenor Clinic’s future.

Since Tichenor is tax-exempt, making Tichenor Clinic a beneficiary of your retirement plan means that 100% of your gift passes to the organization.  This may reduce income and estate taxes, often taxation of up to 75%.

Life Insurance

An outright gift of a life insurance policy to Tichenor Clinic makes an excellent charitable gift. ​If you donate your paid-up life insurance policy, you may be entitled to a tax deduction. ​If you name Tichenor Clinic as a primary or contingent beneficiary of your life insurance policy, the benefits from your policy will pass to us without incurring estate taxes.

Charitable Gift Annuity

A gift annuity is a simple contract between you and a licensed provider for the benefit of the Tichenor Clinic. You make an irrevocable contribution to Tichenor Clinic. 

​You receive an income for your lifetime based upon your age at the time of your gift. The older you are, the higher the income. And, if you use appreciated property to fund the gift annuity, you will likely reduce your capital gains tax.

Charitable Remainder Trust (CRT)

CRT’s are individual trusts that can be funded with appreciated property.  

​CRT’s provide an annual income for you.  Additionally, you will receive an immediate charitable deduction and eliminate capital gains tax on appreciated assets, as well as other income tax benefits.
