Some planned gifts provide life-long income to the donor and their heirs, while others use estate and tax planning techniques to provide for charity and their heirs in ways that maximize the gift and/or minimize its impact on the donor’s estate. What they have in common is that they are ideal ways for you to continue and possibly increase your support of Operation of Hope, and help even more of the world’s poorest children suffering in need of cleft surgery and medical care.

Our “Life Legacy” program recognizes benefactors who have created a legacy of support for Smile Train through a bequest provision in their will or other planned gift to sustain and enhance Operation of Hope’s lifesaving and life-changing cleft surgical care and medical programs around the world.
