Beneficiary Designations

Naming World Vision as a beneficiary of one of your assets, such as your retirement plan or life insurance policy, is a convenient way to share your God-given resources with vulnerable children. All it takes are a few minutes and a simple form. Learn more

Charitable Gift Annuities

When you use cash or stock to establish a charitable gift annuity at World Vision, you’ll receive secure, fixed payments for life for you and/or someone you choose. You’ll also receive tax benefits. After your lifetime(s), the remaining balance will help bring lasting change to children in need. Learn more

Calculate Your Benefits

Stock

If you’re looking for a tax-smart way to share your blessings with children, consider a gift of stock. When you give appreciated stock that you’ve owned for more than one year, you can avoid capital gains tax and receive a charitable income tax deduction when you itemize. Get transfer instructions

Use Your IRA

If you are 70½ years old or older, you can take advantage of a simple way to benefit World Vision and receive tax benefits in return. You can give any amount up to $100,000 per year from your IRA directly to World Vision without having to pay income taxes on the money. This popular gift option is known as a qualified charitable distribution (QCD) and is commonly called the IRA charitable rollover. Learn more
