Combine your compassion for children waiting in foster care with your real world tax, financial, and estate planning interests by making a gift to Dave Thomas Foundation for Adoption. Planned gifts can be donated outright or deferred, and typically come from assets, not income. They include:


Donate a specific dollar amount, property, or percentage of your estate to DTFA by adding us to your living will.

Life insurance policies and retirement plans

If you have a life insurance policy you no longer need, assign ownership to the Foundation as a way to make a contribution while effectively reducing your overall estate taxes.

Trusts and annuities

Reduce capital gains tax with a charitable remainder or annuity trust.

Talk to a professional

Sit down with your tax or legal advisor before making a planned gift to make sure it complements your overall financial goals. The best giving plan is one that fully balances what you wish to accomplish for yourself, your family, and your charitable interests.
