Give the gift of hope – Send Blessing to College!


“My dream is to attend University in Boise, while awaiting the rest of my surgeries, and become a mechanical engineer. I’d like to return home to Zimbabwe to give back to my homeland and to help Operation of Hope with their work of giving another child hope, like they did for me.

All funds will support Blessing’s dream of going to University in 2015 and the continued work of Operation of Hope.

“Life Legacy” Planned Giving in Support of Operation of Hope

The giving vehicles that allow you as a Operation of Hope donor to make larger gifts than you could make from your regular income are collectively called planned giving, which is sometimes referred to as gift planning. 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.

Planned gifts may allow you to:

  • Make a larger charitable gift to Operation of Hope’s than you thought possible and create a legacy of support.
  • Structure a gift that provides for your future financial support and that of your spouse and family.
  • Reduce estate costs of your heirs.
  • Reduce your current year income tax.
  • Avoid or minimize capital gains tax on appreciated assets.
