Bequest & Living Trusts
Jim Stephens, PER - NCD Chair
and Living Trusts of the CHEA Major Project
From the beginning
of our Major Project in 1950, we have been involved in what has become
the finest Major Project in Elkdom.
Its success and accomplishments have not only restored the bodies
and minds of thousands of children in need, it has instilled pride in
the hearts of our members and their families.
We are now into our
sixth decade of providing physical therapy, occupational therapy, vision
screening, speech and language pathology and special clinical services
to the children of California and Hawaii.
Since 1950 children with disabilities have dependent on our Major
Project, which has provided countless numbers with the chance to
overcome or compensate for physical or visual problems.
Because of the personal participation and financial support of
the Elks of California-Hawaii, our Lodges and we have seen thousands of
small legs take their first steps.
Once non-functioning hands now hold spoons and play with toys,
and previously silent voices can now speak their first words.
Thousands of children now enter school with visual problems
identified and corrected.
The creation of the
BEQUEST and LIVING TRUSTS (BLT) Committee in 1984 set the state
for ensuring the financial future of the Major Project.
Amounts contributed under $500.00 go directly to help underwrite
Major Project expenses for the year in which they are given.
The establishment of the Bequest and Living Trusts Legacy Fund in
1991 designated gifts of $500.00 or more to be placed in a special
BLT gives all of us
an opportunity to participate in the Major Project through a living
trust fund. There are also
other options available through the BLT Committee for individual
investment guaranteeing a lifetime income for the donor with an
immediate tax deduction.
For further information on how YOU can participate in these trusts contact your lodge committeeperson, and remember you do not have to be an Elk in order to participate in the BLT funds.
