Your gift today will help a struggling child. We promise you.


THANK YOU so much for caring about those who need you most!


When you give to Clifford Beers Clinic, you are asking a child, quite simply, what happened to you?  And you are letting that child and her family know that someone wants to hear the answer.

Just ask the family of Miriam and Nisha.  You can read how the kindness of people like you changed everything for them — from the family directly!  See the letter they sent us by clicking here.

You can be assured, too, that your gift makes a distinct impact.  To see your gifts at work, click here.

Give Monthly

Give One Time

Your gift allows our Clinic staff to provide services to our children not covered by insurance, and those services do things like help families find suitable housing and ensure a child’s basic and school-based needs are met.  To make a gift that changes lives, please use the yellow button in the top right-hand corner of this page.

Bequests: Unwavering Investment for Our Community’s Future

Bequests provide Clifford Beers Clinic with the resources it needs to ensure it has the best possible future.  Your bequest allows the Clinic to serve the community at the highest possible level, and it is about much, much more than a tax advantage.

It’s about caring.

When you plan your estate, you capture an opportunity to provide for the comfort and security of your loved ones.  Estate planning is also a chance to remember causes that have mattered to you during your life.  A bequest to Clifford Beers Clinic says that the well-being of the children and families of New Haven matters to you.

Your bequest can direct that a fixed percentage of your estate or an exact dollar amount goes to the Clinic.  If you already have a will, it is easy to add a codicil naming Clifford Beers Clinic as a beneficiary.  You can also choose to name the Clinic as the beneficiary of a life insurance policy or retirement plan.

Whichever you choose, your generosity and foresight will have a positive and lasting impact on the future of Clifford Beers Clinic and the children and families it serves.  Indeed, because it leads to a healthier community for generations to come, the long-term impact of a planned gift is immeasurable.

We are here to help you explore all possibilities.  To discuss planned giving, please contact Kitty Champlin, Director of Development, at 203-777-8648 x.2246.
