The Cradle Legacy Society includes those who have made a commitment to the future of The Cradle and to support individuals and families touched by adoption. Legacy Society members can include The Cradle in their estate plan through a bequest in a will or living trust, a charitable gift annuity, a charitable remainder trust, or as beneficiary of a life insurance policy, retirement plan or other arrangement. The Cradle Legacy Society also includes friends of The Cradle whose memory inspired support of our programs in lieu of flowers at the time of their passing.
