Every year, more donors are discovering the benefits of supporting ACHIEVE through their estate plans. These planned gifts are the cornerstones to the ACHIEVE Foundation and support the programs and services of our organization.
A charitable bequest is the easiest and best way to make a gift to ACHIEVE. By means of your will or other estate plan, you can name ACHIEVE as the beneficiary of a portion of your estate, or of particular assets in your estate.
There are many reasons to make a bequest. A bequest allows you to honor a loved one, while providing critical support to ACHIEVE’s programs and services. For more information and planned giving language.
Your retirement-plan benefits are very likely a significant portion of your net worth. And because of special tax considerations, they could make an excellent choice for funding a charitable gift.
Gifts of appreciated securities and closely held stock can be extremely beneficial — both to you and to ACHIEVE. You may receive an income-tax deduction equal to the fair market value of the securities, as well as reduce or eliminate capital gains taxes.
Giving a gift of real estate, such as a personal home, vacation home, undeveloped property, or a farm, can be a highly effective philanthropic and financial strategy.
“The creation of a thousand forests can be found in one acorn.”
-Ralph Waldo Emerson
