"God has blessed me and my family in so many ways and in turn I want to be a blessing in the lives of others. Every child needs to feel secure and know they are loved. I know The Children's Home provides that security and love for children who are hurting. It gives me so much joy being a part (even in the smallest of ways) of helping to provide that security"
(Mrs. Beth Marsden)
"I realized a need for some of the things I make in my workshop. It gave me a purpose and something to look forward to."
(Mr. Harrison Perry)
"I give because I've never had to experience what some people have to go through. I give because I don't like poverty, nor hunger, nor sorrow, but all are part of our society, of any society, and if I can lessen one person's pain, then I will. I know it's impossible to help everyone, but I still help when I can. I understand that sometimes, even my help won't solve a problem, but at least I can try."
(Ms. Krystina Shultz)

Bequests through Your Will
Many of our friends provide gifts to UMHC through bequests in their Wills. Charitable bequests are an excellent way to provide for the children without parting with assets during your lifetime. Our Legacy Society was created to recognize those individuals who have so generously included the children in their estate planning. For more information about how you can make a lasting gift to UMHC, please click here.
While making a bequest through your Will is perhaps the most popular way to make a planned gift to charity, there are a wide variety of planned giving opportunities available to donors. Many can help you accomplish your financial goals, offer lifetime income, or provide tax savings while you make a significant and lasting gift to the children. Other traditional planned gifts include charitable gift annuities, charitable remainder trusts, life estate contracts, and gifts of life insurance policies, real estate, or appreciated securities. Donors making planned gifts to UMHC are members of our Legacy Society. Please click here for more information.
Corporate Matching Gifts
If you are employed or retired from a company with a matching gift program, you may be able to double or triple your gift dollars to UMHC. Please contact your company's personnel office for information.
Each year, we receive over $60,000 in critically needed items including clothing, school supplies, hygiene products, housewares, domestics, and gift certificates. Our generous supporters even purchase birthday gifts and Christmas gifts for the kids at UMHC. Click here for our Wish List.
