Support the NEDC

Giving Life. Giving Hope. Building Families.



Support the NEDC

You can make a life-changing difference by investing in this work financially. Your giving protects the lives and dignity of human embryos. Your generous support also gives those struggling with infertility the chance to complete their families.

Investing in the NEDC also gets the word out to those for whom embryo adoption could be the perfect path to parenthood- they’re just waiting to be reached with the message! What a great feeling to build families and get the tiniest lives “out of the freezer.” YOU can make it happen! Now THAT’S making a difference!

Want to partner in this work? We’ve made it easy to give in the way you prefer. Scroll down to contribute a gift or set up a regular giving plan through our secure online giving platform. If you scroll down a bit further, you’ll also find info about making an eternal difference with a legacy gift.

The Evangelical Council for Financial Accountability (ECFA) has accredited the NEDC. That means we hold to established standards for financial accountability and transparency. When you give to the NEDC, you can be confident your money will go toward carrying out this life-giving mission!

Planned Giving

Want to bless families and children by giving life and hope in a way that outlasts your own lifetime? Prayerfully consider a legacy gift to the NEDC. There are a variety of ways you can help fund the NEDC’s work for decades to come:

  • Include the NEDC in your will. Have your attorney add a charitable bequest for the NEDC to your will or estate plan. You can direct how you would like us to use your gift.
  • Designate the NEDC as an insurance beneficiary. Designate the NEDC to receive all or part of the proceeds of a life insurance policy. To do this, just ask your insurance company for a beneficiary designation form.
  • Include the NEDC in your retirement plan. Designate the NEDC to receive part or all of what remains of your retirement plan after your death. This is a tax-efficient way for you to bless others and ensure your money has the greatest possible impact. For instance, heirs of a large estate may receive as little as one-third of a retirement plan after estate and income taxes are factored in. However, because charities do not pay income taxes on donations received, distributions to the NEDC will not be taxed as income.
  • Set up a trust benefiting the NEDC. Establishing a charitable remainder trust can provide income and tax benefits to you during your lifetime, and then pass those benefits on to the NEDC after your death. We would be glad to confidentially discuss with you the tax and income benefits available to you and your family through a charitable remainder trust.
