Creating a Legacy
Planned gifts to the Arkansas Prostate Cancer Foundation create opportunities for the Foundation to serve the people of Arkansas while guaranteeing the future of our mission. Planned giving also permits you to coordinate your charitable giving goals with those of your estate and financial planning.
There are a number of ways you can choose to help. Consider discussing the options below with your estate planning professional.
This is the easiest method of making a future gift. You can make a bequest simply by including a bequest provision in your will of a dollar amount, a gift of specific property or a percentage of your estate. Once the Foundation receives your gift, we apply it to supporting our programs and services in accordance with your wishes. Using this method of giving, your assets remain in your control during your lifetime and you can always modify your Will if your life, financial or family circumstances change.
Revocable Trust Giving
If you have established a revocable trust to pass your property to loved ones, you can also provide provisions in the trust that are similar to the bequest provisions discussed above or provide that upon termination of your trust that a portion of the trust assets be used for the charitable purposes you designate.
Life Insurance Gifts
A simple way to make a significant gift in the future is to name a charitable beneficiary to receive all or a portion of the proceeds of a policy no longer needed for its original purpose. Often, as a result of tax law this form of charitable giving is an extremely efficient way to support the charitable causes that are important to you. You may also purchase a new policy naming the Foundation or another charity as a beneficiary or co-beneficiary.
Remember that a decision today to make an Estate Planning or Legacy Gift will help insure that the Foundation continues to help men and their families well into the future. If you are interested, we encourage you to discuss these planned giving techniques with your attorney or financial planning professional to ensure that they support your overall estate planning objectives.
