The American Academy of Pediatrics, CA Chapter 3 (AAP-CA3) is dedicated to achieving physical, mental health and social well-being for all infants, children and adolescents in San Diego and Imperial Counties and supports our members in this endeavor. We play a key role in advocating for children and families on an international, national and regional level. We represent the “voice” of the child when working with government officials, national lawmakers and local representatives. We know that focusing on children ages 0-5 means establishing an early foundation for health and success. By coordinating programs focused on this age group, we are investing early with a higher probability of return on investment in these children’s lives.

MORE WAYS TO GIVE

MONETARY GIFT

A recurring gift of stocks, securities or a monetary donation support the programs provided by the Chapter.

CHARITABLE LEAD TRUST

If your goal is to leave an inheritance to your children, but you would also like to make a significant charitable gift through your estate, a charitable lead trust may be the avenue to help you achieve both objectives and help support the AAP-CA3.

CHARITABLE REMAINDER TRUST

Consider creating a charitable trust that provides you an annual income; and then supports the Chapter after your lifetime. In the right circumstances, this plan can increase your income, reduce your taxes, unlock appreciated investments, rid you of investment worries and ultimately provide very important support to the Chapter.

CHARITABLE GIFT ANNUITY

By donating through a gift annuity, you enter into a contract in which you transfer assets to the Chapter in exchange for payments for life to one or two annuitants. Charitable Gift Annuities are a great way to provide lifetime income for yourself or someone you love while also supporting the Chapter’s mission.

EMPLOYER & WORKPLACE GIVING

You can maximize the impact of your donation when you take advantage of employer matching gift programs or sign up for workplace giving. Ask your employer if they have an employee matching gift program.

LIVING TRUST

Make a revocable gift during your lifetime by naming the Chapter as Beneficiary of Assets in a living trust.

BEQUESTS

A charitable bequest is a distribution from your estate to a charitable organization through your last will and testament. There are different kinds of bequests. You can defer a gift during your lifetime by naming the AAP-CA3 in your will. Your charitable bequest may be exempt from federal estate taxes. Every situation is unique; please check with your tax attorney.

LIFE INSURANCE GIFT

You can make a gift with little cost to you by giving a portion of your policy to the AAP-CA3. You can make AAP-CA3 a beneficiary. You can create a legacy that makes a difference for years to come. Contact your insurance broker to update your beneficiary form.
