Ways to Give

You can designate how your gift benefits Relief Nursery. Thank you for investing in safe and healthy futures for our children and families.

Permanent Endowment Fund

Children’s Legacy Fund for the benefit of Relief Nursery

This account was established in 2014 with a lead donation from John and Linda Sheppard. Their vision was to establish a $10 million endowment fund that would annually support the services we provide to children and families.

This fund is held at Oregon Community Foundation (OCF). The OCF board sets an annual payout rate for permanent funds. Our current rate is 4.0%.

Building Sustainability Fund

This investment account holds the Board restricted funds that are used for on-going maintenance and repairs to the Eugene and Springfield facilities.

General Operating Fund

This account holds unrestricted gifts. Interest and dividend income is distributed and deposited into our bank account and used to support ongoing operations.

Planned Gifts

Planned gifts – bequests, life insurance policies and charitable remainder trusts are the result of careful consideration and integrate a charitable gift into your overall tax and estate planning objectives. A planned gift can maximize benefits for both you and Relief Nursery.

Gifts of stock are an excellent way to support Relief Nursery.
