The Schuetz Family

Operating without any state subsidy, American Family Children’s Hospital will always depend on the generosity of compassionate supporters to ensure that critically sick and injured children receive the best health care possible.

Long-Term Charitable Gifts

Cash and shares of stock are the simplest ways to give and provide immediate benefits for children who need and rely on American Family Children’s Hospital. If, however, you are considering a long-term charitable gift, inclusion of American Family Children’s Hospital in your will or estate plan can help ensure that the most complex health care needs of the next generation will be met.

Through careful charitable planning with your attorney, financial advisor or the Hospital’s official gift planning partner (University of Wisconsin Foundation’s Office of Gift Planning), you can explore the options that best fulfill your wishes and financial goals. Bequests in wills or living trusts, beneficiary designations, life insurance, gift annuities and even charitable trusts are all examples of deeply meaningful ways that you can create a philanthropic legacy and know that every dollar will be used to address the American Family Children’s Hospital’s greatest needs for children.

Honoring Your Legacy (Donor Recognition)

If you make a legacy gift to benefit American Family Children's Hospital, we hope you will let us know by completing this Enrollment Form (pdf).

Making us aware of your plans to benefit the Hospital further allows us to have meaningful dialogue with you (or your advisor) should you wish to designate your gift to a special area of need.
