Endowed Gifts

Your Gift Can Last Forever

An endowment gift to Children's National Hospital today provides a brighter picture for our future. When you make a donation to an endowment, you give a gift with both immediate and long-term benefits.

Children's National invests endowment donations. We then use a portion of the annual income from the investment to address immediate needs at Children's National. Children's National reinvests the remaining funds to ensure indefinite support.

An Example of How It Works

Couple Smiling Longtime Children's National Hospital supporters Susan and Charlie have two goals: First, they want to make sure Children's National continues to receive support after they're gone. Second, they want to memorialize Charlie's parents, Mr. and Mrs. Jones.

Susan and Charlie make a $25,000 donation to Children's National, which we invest. Each year, Children's National will invest a portion of the income from the invested money to support our mission in honor of the Joneses. Plus, Susan and Charlie qualify for a federal income tax charitable deduction on their taxes.
