Planned Giving

Remembering the Carousel of Happiness in your financial planning will ensure that you leave a legacy of joy and happiness and can help you reduce or eliminate taxes. For more information, please contact your tax adviser or estate planner.

A planned gift ensures the Carousel remains a destination of joy for children of all ages, abilities and backgrounds and preserves a rare historic wooden carousel.

Life income gifts: You can name the Carousel of Happiness as the recipient of an IRA rollover, appreciated stock, or real estate.

Making a bequest: You can leave a legacy of support by naming the Carousel of Happiness as a beneficiary in your will.

Life Insurance: You can name the Carousel of Happiness as a beneficiary of a portion or all of your life insurance policy.

Customized Planned Gift: If you would like to customize a legacy gift, or make a planned gift that is not listed here, please know that we will be happy to work with your estate planning professional to make.

Retirement Account Distributions can be donated directly to the Carousel of Happiness, thus mitigating retirement income revenue (see the Donations page).
