Make a legacy gift
Including CPARC Foundation in your legacy planning can provide tax benefits to you and your loved ones, while helping us to work on behalf of people with intellectual and developmental disabilities and their families.
A legacy gift allows you to give now or in the future through IRA gifts, bequests, trusts, and annuities. These giving options carry certain advantages based on your personal tax, financial, and planning needs. We will work with your professional advisor(s) to help you meet your goals. Contact Trisha today at (717) 249-2611 to get started.
You can make a gift in your will or other estate plans. Such gifts are easy to establish and may reduce the estate taxes that may be levied against your property. This charitable deduction can greatly reduce the cost of making a bequest. Although legal consultation is always advisable before designing any type of will provision, your intention may be simply stated:
“I give and bequeath ____% percent ($___ amount) of my total estate, determined as of the date of my death, to The Arc of Cumberland & Perry Counties Foundation, a non-profit located in Carlisle, PA, for general use/purpose or specify a purpose/CPARC program: _________________.”
If the CPARC Foundation board of directors determine at any time that a bequest cannot be used as it was originally intended, they will apply the proceeds to a purpose that most closely resembles the donor’s intention. Providing such a provision in your will creates an unrestricted bequest, which assures that your gift, will be used where it is most needed.
