Roots to Grow; Wings to Fly

The greatest gift we can give children is roots to grow and wings to fly. Boysville provides a safe, family home to children so they may grow and become strong, healthy adults. We give them a foundation of security and stability. Just as plants depend on nourishment and stability, so do our children. We help strengthen their wings to life them above their past life and fly towards their hopes and dreams.

(You can plant the seed to give children strong roots with a legacy gift to Boysville. You can give children who have faced adversity a strong, familial foundation with a legacy gift)

Create a living legacy by including Boysville in your estate planning. You can do this several ways:

  • Create a duel-benefit gift such as a Charitable Remainder Trust. You receive fixed payments based on your age and desired interest of return. You also receive a charity tax-deduction. Boysville, Inc. becomes the beneficiary of your trust principle.
  • Designate stocks, bonds, real estate or life-insurance to Boysville, Inc.
