Your will is a valuable property right that should be exercised. It can help provide for the future security and happiness of those people and organizations you care about most. To make sure your beneficiaries are protected and your assets will be distributed as you want, use the services of a knowledgeable attorney in upgrading or crafting your will.
Your wise investments of the past can do so much to help the ever growing number of people confronting AIDS. At the same time and through some planning, your gift can provide actual cash flow back to you. The information you find on this page and its links will give you background information on what are referred to as planned gifts.
A planned gift is a charitable gift you decide on now, but in most instances actually is given at a later date. It is a gift that reflects both your loyal commitment to your loved ones and your belief in the future of ARCW and its impact on our community. With a planned gift you can continue express your support for those living with HIV/AIDS just as you do today. Depending on your situation, planned gifts may add value to your overall financial and estate planning. These powerful gifts have the potential to increase current income, create tax savings or conserve your assets.
If you own property, have life insurance or a retirement account, you have the power to make a planned gift. The easiest way to make such a gift to ARCW is to include a bequest in your will or designate ARCW as the, or one of the beneficiaries of your retirement plan or life insurance policy. Charitable Trusts also may be an option. The right planned gift is one that satisfies both your financial needs and charitable goals. ARCW can work with you and your professional advisor to help you achieve that satisfaction.
Just as you direct donations to ARCW now, you may direct the use of your planned gift in any number of ways to support the important work being done today by ARCW.
ARCW realizes that planned giving requires thoughtful consideration and involves private information. To confidentially discuss any planned giving issue, please contact:
