Planned Giving


What, when, and how you give makes a difference to both you and the children we serve.

Explore your many planned giving options, including some you may not have considered before. Use stock, real estate, retirement assets, life insurance policies, or your estate plan to transform lives. You can even make a gift that provides you with payment for life.




Many of our partners have chosen to include Kikwiyakare Global Initiative in their estate plan so they can continue to help build a brighter future for children even after they are gone. By making a "gift of a lifetime" in this way, you too can continue to bring hope to children even after your lifetime. To ensure your ongoing impact long into the future, you can:


  • Include a bequest to Kikwiyakare Global Initiative in your will or Revocable Trust

  • Designate Kikwiyakare Global Initiative as a beneficiary of your Retirement Assets IRA, 401(k), 403(b) or pension

  • Name World Vision as a beneficiary of your life insurance policy


How it works

  • Sign the appropriate paperwork making World Vision a beneficiary of your will, trust, insurance or retirement assets [ See Example of bequest language][

  • After your lifetime, money and assets are distributed to your heirs and World Vision as directed by your estate plan documents.

  • Kikwiyakare Global Initiative uses your bequest for the purpose(s) you specify.



  • Maintain control of your assets during your lifetime

  • Have the flexibility to modify your bequest if your circumstances change.

  • Reduce your taxable estate by the amount given to Kikwiyakare Global

  • Make a significant gift to World Vision and designate how it should be used.

  • Experience the satisfaction of knowing you can continue to help children even after you are gone.

Gifts that Provide Income


If you want to bring hope to children, but need to maintain income from an asset you would like to give to Kikwiyakare Global Initiative, a life income gift may be a perfect solution. These gift plans allow you to receive payments (for life or a period of years) from assets you donate today. Afterward, remaining funds are used by Kikwiyakare Global Initiative for the purposes you designate. You can use these plans to increase income, reduce taxes, diversify holdings, and create lasting change for children and communities.
