When you include RealOptions in your estate plan, you not only take advantage of the tax benefits of charitable giving, but you also help secure the future of our purpose and mission for generations to come.
Legacy giving is a form of charitable giving that allows you to make a gift to RealOptions in the future without substantially affecting your income today. There are various legacy giving options:
Gifts that Pay You Income
Testamentary Charitable Remainder Trust
Often referred to as a "Give-it-Twice" trust, a testamentary charitable remainder trust is established by a bequest from the donor, often from their IRA account or other retirement plan assets. This structure allows for a series of payments to children for a select term of years and avoids the negative income tax consequences of a lump sum withdrawal. When the trust ends, any remaining trust value transfers to charity as instructed.
Gifts You Make Today

The RealOptions Endowment Fund:
An endowment is a permanent fund established for the ongoing financial support of vital ministries. An endowment fund is prudently invested with the goal of producing both current incomes to support the work of ministry, and long term growth in principal to protect against inflation and meet future ministry needs. Each year only a portion of the proceeds, or earnings, of the fund are used; never the principal. Click to learn more about The RealOptions Endowment Fund w/ The National Christian Foundation.
*All donations received are considered as unrestricted contributions unless explicit in writing between the donor and RealOptions. If you would like to restrict your gift for a specific purpose, please discuss your plans with the Planned Giving Department to be sure that such a fund is within RealOptions Pregnancy Medical Clinics programs and that any minimum funding thresholds will be met.
Please contact the Office of Planned Giving for more information regarding restricted bequests, endowments, bequests of retirement plan assets or testamentary planned gifts. Thank you.

What Patients Say
"Very helpful and excellent care. Had a very positive experience here. Very informative and the staff is very generous and kind. Thank you for the support!"
"Sarah lay quietly on the ultrasound table as the nurse began to scan her stomach. Suddenly on the screen the top of a small head appeared and two arms outstretched as if reaching for a hug. "Is that my baby?" asked Sarah quietly. "Yes, and he is waving to you," said the nurse with a gentle smile. Tears started to slowly roll down Sarah’s face as she looked at the baby while the nurse took measurements to determine the child’s age."
"Mei was positively glowing as she came into our East San Jose site to pick out some clothes for her baby boy due in a few weeks. She was completely transformed from the confused and scared woman who first entered our clinic several months earlier. As she picked out Christmas outfits and warm jackets for her baby, she reminisced with her Patient Advocate about how far she had come."
"As Olivia sat in the chair at Planned Parenthood trying to choke back her tears, she looked out the window and saw RealOptions across the street. She decided that before she went any further, she would find out what a pregnancy medical clinic was. When she saw online that RealOptions offered free pregnancy tests, ultrasounds, and options consultations, she made an appointment and came in a few days later."
