Meet the Legacy Society

Members of the Legacy Society have many reasons for including Child Saving Institute (CSI) in their will (or other plans).

  • Some are continuing a family tradition of caring for CSI’s children. Like the donor who remembers when his mother and others at her church canned fruits and jellies to feed CSI children during the Great Depression.
  • Others, adopted from CSI as babies, have made their gifts in honor of their loving parents.
  • Some are adoptive parents, thankful for the opportunities CSI has given them.
  • Some worked at CSI for a time, and want to pave the way for those who will continue their work with Omaha’s vulnerable children.
  • Others still are generous people who care deeply about the well-being of children and trust CSI to continue their commitment to kids for years to come.

Read the stories below of some of our Legacy Society members about why they give, and consider your relationship to CSI. You, too, can become part of the good future for the children CSI serves.

Ruth and Paul Few

It’s not every day you meet a couple with so many meaningful connections to CSI. Ruth’s introduction to the agency occurred when she served her practicum with the agency while completing her Master’s degree in social work in the late 1960s. Read more >>

Ken Moore

"The reason I got involved in child issues is right on that shelf," he said, pointing to a photograph of a pretty young woman holding a baby. The woman is his daughter, Kristine, whom he and his first wife fostered and later adopted, starting when she was three years old. Read more >>
