Providing ongoing support for Kennedy Krieger is one of the most important and permanent ways you can affect the lives of the children we serve. You become a member of the Winthrop Phelps Society when you make a planned gift such as a bequest, charitable gift annuity, gift of property, life insurance, or charitable trust. This Society is named for the founder of the Children's Rehabilitation Institute, the predecessor of the Kennedy Krieger Institute.
Members of the Winthrop Phelps Society have expressed their commitment to Kennedy Krieger Foundation through a very special and important form of financial support.
These donors have named Kennedy Krieger as the ultimate beneficiary of a planned gift. Such gifts might include a bequest and/or charitable income gifts, such as charitable gift annuities, charitable remainder unitrusts, charitable remainder annuity trusts, or gifts of life insurance.
