Planned Giving


TCRC has made significant progress since 1979 and with your help we can do more. TCRC provides direct support and services to individuals and families affected by intellectual and developmental disabilities in Tazewell County.

Help us to:

  • Protect and strengthen the opportunities that adults within tellectual and developmental disabilities have to lead full and independent lives, free from poverty and with ready access to whatever services and supports they need.
  • Promote the respect and acceptance that people with intellectual and developmental disabilities, as equal members of society, deserve from the general public.

In addition to a monetary donation that can be made safely and securely online, there are more ways you can support TCRC to help make a profound impact. Learn more about donating stock, monthly giving, matching gifts and tribute gifts.

Real Estate

All gifts of real estate require prior approval by TCRC. A gift of real estate may be a principal residence or vacation home, a farm, a commercial building, a subdivision lot or unimproved land. The gift may be the entire property or a fractional interest in the property. TCRC’s Development Office can walk you through the approval process.

Retained Life Estate in Property

You can generate a current income tax deduction by giving a home or farm to TCRC, while retaining the right to use the property during your lifetime. The property will also be removed from your taxable estate.

Memorial Gifts

A memorial gift is a thoughtful way to remember a loved one who has passed away by making a gift in his or her memory.

Honor Gifts

An honor gift is a unique way to celebrate a special occasion or recognize someone dear to you. For example, an honor gift could honor celebrations, such as:

  • Anniversary
  • Bar or Bat Mitzvah
  • Birth of a child
  • Birthday
  • Graduation
  • Gratitude to a teacher or nurse
  • Honor a business associate
  • Honor guests in lieu of party favors
  • Wedding
  • Any occasion or accomplishment

Deferred or Planned Gifts

Your gift to TCRC can also be a useful financial planning tool.

Life Income Gift

A life income gift, such as a charitable gift annuity or a charitable remainder unitrust, can provide you and/or your loved ones with an income for the duration of your lives or for a specific number of years. You receive a current income tax deduction as well.

Charitable Lead Trust

These trusts can be used to transfer assets to a loved one with a significantly reduced tax liability.


The most common form of deferred gift to TCRC is a bequest contained in a person’s will or revocable (living) trust.

Gifts of Retirement Plans

Naming TCRC as a primary or contingent beneficiary of a retirement plan (e.g. IRA, SEP, 401(k), 403(b), ESOP, etc.) may enable you to make a larger gift than you anticipated because income and estate taxes are not imposed when plan assets are distributed to TCRC.. Your retirement account’s plan administrator (the company that manages the account) can help you designate TCRC as a primary or contingent beneficiary on the plan’s beneficiary form.
