Make a Gift

Kinder Heart Foundation alumnae RN’s and friends are the driving force behind the success of the Kinder Heart Foundation. Several giving options are available to those who wish to support the Foundation and its mission. Donors to the Kinder Heart Foundation may be recognized in our Annual and Lifetime Giving Clubs for their cumulative annual and lifetime support of the Foundation, as well as on our Donor Wall and, space permitting, in The Kinder RN magazine. Lead donors can have a Kinder Heart House namesake.

You may make a one-time or recurring gift online using a Visa, MasterCard, American Express, Discover Card, or ACH anytime on the Foundation Donation page.

You may send your check made payable to the “Kinder Heart Foundation” to:
Kinder Heart Foundation
9151 Atlanta Ave., Suite 6717
Huntington Beach, CA 92646

Gifts of appreciated stock, real estate, or other gifts of personal property and assets of value are accepted by the Kinder Heart Foundation. Please contact us at (800) 409-7653 or to make transfer arrangements.

Over the years, many members and friends have named the Foundation as the recipient of a planned gift, such as an estate gift, life insurance policy, charitable trust, or charitable gift annuity. Planned gifts, most of which are tax-deductible can be arranged through legal counsel or a personal financial planner. We are happy to discuss planned giving options and can provide you with sample language for a will or other planned giving vehicle. If you have included the Foundation in your estate plans, we would love know so we can recognize you as a member of the Vision Society.

Individuals aged 70 1/2 or older can make charitable gifts of up to $100,000 from a traditional or Roth IRA directly to the Kinder Heart Foundation without having to pay income taxes on the distribution. With the Protecting Americans from Tax Hikes (PATH) Act, passed in 2015, this giving opportunity was made a permanent addition to the tax code. For your convenience, we have a sample letter for making a qualified charitable distribution from an IRA. As always, the Foundation encourages you to consult with your legal and/or financial advisor before making any decisions, especially as it relates to state and federal income taxes.

The 2020 Vision for Caring Circle is Kinder Heart Foundation’s giving society EXCLUSIVELY for undergraduate members. Your unrestricted gift of $25.00 or more makes you a Foundation donor and supports the educational, leadership, and philanthropic priorities of our sisterhood. As a token of our appreciation, undergraduate members will receive this year’s 2020 Vision for Caring Circle dangle to display on their badge. The dangle changes each year, so this year’s dangle is only available for 2020 Vision for Caring Circle members through July 31. Make your gift at
