Maximum Impact

You can ensure that your legacy will have the maximum positive impact for children in several ways – with a gift through your will or trust or through naming the Sammy Fund as a beneficiary of your retirement plan, other assets or insurance policy.

100% to Children

One hundred percent of any gift to the Sammy Fund is used to help low-income children by opening doors of opportunity in the leadership, artistic and humanitarian fields.  As the Sammy Fund is an all-volunteer organization with no paid employees or administrative expenses, any gift you make will have the maximum possible benefit for under-served children.  You can be confident your gift will make a wonderful positive difference.  What a beautiful legacy that is!
