Northern Hills CASA recognizes individuals that include us in their estate plans by extending Membership in our Lift Up a Child Legacy Society

Dedicated to fullfilling the mission, the Lift Up a Child Legacy will ensure sustainability of the NHCASA Program for future generations. There are many ways you can leave a legacy while at the same time provide yourself and your family with significant tax benefits.

Careful financial planning can be beneficial for you and your heirs and allow you to leave a legacy to support the Northern Hills CASA Program for future generations.

Gifts of Cash:

A cash gift can be made as a general donation, which will usually go for the greatest need, or you may designate a large gift for a specific purpose.

Gifts of Securities:

Stocks or other investments which have grown in value can become a substantial gift at a low net cost to you.


Charities are created and sustained by people who want to give their resources to solve problems and enrich communities. If you would like to give your required distribution to a qualified charitable organization, please consider a donation to the Northern Hills Area CASA (NHCASA) Program. An IRA Rollover gift is a simple and easy way to donate to local charities.

The IRA Charitable Rollover permits taxpayers over the age of 70 1/2 to make charitable gifts totaling up to $100,000 per year from their Individual Retirement Accounts without increasing their federal taxable income.

To find out if a Rollover Charitable Gift is right for you, please contact your financial advisor. Distributions must be made directly from the IRA trustee payable to NHCASA. If requesting the distribution by letter, please ask your IRA administrator to include your name and contact information with the contribution.


Extend your legacy of making a difference in the lives of abused and neglected children beyond your lifetime. Include Northern Hills CASA in your will or living trust.

Gifts of Real Estate:

Corporations, partnerships, and individuals should consider giving a gift of property.

Beneficiary Designations:

Naming NHCASA as a beneficiary under an individual retirement account, will secure CASA’s vital services long into the future. Children, safe from harm, will become a living legacy of your generosity.

Endowment Fund:

Northern Hills CASA accepts donations into the South Dakota Community Foundation Endowment Fund- Northern Hills CASA.
