Elmcrest’s Future Fund
Your planned gift keeps giving forever
Your gift can create a legacy that will support children in our care for generations to come.
Planned gifts to Elmcrest, such as a bequest in your will or trust, a life insurance designation, or a stock donation, becomes part of the Future Fund. The endowment preserves the gift in perpetuity, but the investment income it generates is available to cover critically needed services for children when other funding sources falter.
Adding bequest language to your will or living trust is simple. It can done by adding just a single sentence. A bequest can be unrestricted, enabling Elmcrest to direct your funds where the future need is greatest, or restricted to a particular program or Elmcrest location.
We recommend using the following words in your will.
I give the sum of $___ (or I give ___% of my estate) to Elmcrest Children’s Center, 960 Salt Springs Road, Syracuse, NY 13224 (tax id: 15-0539090) to be used or disposed of as its Board of Directors deems appropriate in its sole discretion.
For more information, consult your lawyer or contact Chris Iven at firstname.lastname@example.org or 315-446-6250, ext. 355.

Become a Partner
Elmcrest is eager to partner with organizations that share our commitment to helping the community’s most vulnerable children. The businesses and other institutions that step forward as Fostering Leadership partners keep Elmcrest strong for the 2,500 children and family members we serve each year. Our partners enable Elmcrest to help children build a path to a brighter future. And when their future brightens, it’s a brighter day for our whole community.
With a $10,000 commitment, Fostering Leadership partners receive prominent recognition at Elmcrest events, on our website, and in our annual report, newsletters, and other printed material. Fostering Leadership partners may also participate in our youth employment readiness program, enabling youth in care at Elmcrest to learn, grow and thrive while gaining valuable real-world work experience.
Donating supplies and materials
We’re dedicated to helping children in our care build a path to a brighter future. That includes providing a supportive, home-like setting. It also includes providing activities to help children discover their passions, learn new things and develop the skills they need to be successful in life.
We’re always looking for ways to bring joy to the children in our care. Right now, we need games and craft supplies of all sorts. They’re necessary for kids to just be kids, yet their cost isn’t reimbursed by government funding. We could use your help.
Please make a monetary donation and we’ll buy the most needed items on your behalf.
Where there are children, there is hope.
Through a memorial gift to Elmcrest, you honor the life of someone you hold dear by fostering hope among children who need it most.
