Qualified Charitable Distribution (QCD)

It’s not easy to think about you not being here on a daily basis with your loved ones. A Will provides for the people and charities that are most important to you. It’s the best way to ensure your wishes are carried out. A gift from your Will is a powerful way to make an impact at Adoption & Beyond.

You may make a bequest or gift through your estate by including a provision in your will or living trust, or by naming Adoption & Beyond as a beneficiary of a retirement plan or life insurance policy. A bequest is a gift from your estate—a transfer of cash, securities, or other property—made through your estate plans. A bequest costs nothing now and enables you to contribute to Adoption & Beyond’s impact far into the future. Some of the advantages of creating a bequest include:

  • You retain control of and use of your assets during your lifetime.
  • You may modify your bequest if your circumstances change.
  • Gifts to Adoption & Beyond from your estate are exempt from federal estate taxes.
Sample bequest language
I bequeath to Adoption & Beyond, Inc. (Tax ID #75-3159701), a nonprofit organization located at, 16236 Metcalf Ave, Overland Park, Kansas 66085,
the sum of _________ dollars; or
an amount equal to ________ percent of the net value of my estate; or
all the rest, residue, and remainder of my estate


An endowment provides for Adoption & Beyond’s future. Earnings from the endowment give perpetual support for Adoption & Beyond’s most pressing needs. An endowment gives Adoption & Beyond fiscal strength and stability to ensure our continued success in building healthy families through child-centered adoptions.
