Planned Giving

Planned Giving, also called Legacy Giving, is a wonderful way to make a larger, lasting contribution to The Arc. By designating a major gift in life or as part of your estate plan, you are establishing a legacy that not only creates a memory of your life but also provides long-term support for people with disabilities.

The Arc offers a full range of special planned giving arrangements to help you realize your financial, tax, and estate planning benefits. There are a myriad of easy giving options ranging from naming The Arc as a beneficiary in your will to a more complex trust arrangement. Ultimately, the best plan for you will balance what you wish to accomplish for yourself, your family, and your charitable interests.

Please consider one of several opportunities outlined below as you plan your own charitable gifts:

  • Securities and Real Estate
  • Tangible Personal Property
  • Bequests (Wills)
  • Life Insurance
  • Charitable Gift Annuity
  • Charitable Remainder Trust
  • Charitable Lead Trust
