Bequests or Planned Gifts
Gift annuities, life insurance policies, endowment funds, IRA’s and other tax advantaged strategies enable donors to make meaningful gifts to provide crucial financial support for the future of AWI. Your generous gift will help hundreds of older adults for years to come and create a philanthropic legacy for others to follow.
When you make your lifetime giving plans, remember that by providing for AWI through a bequest, your estate will receive the full benefit of an estate tax charitable contribution deduction. Your investment in AWI’s future will ensure a community of healthy older adults.
Gift of Stocks
By gifting shares of appreciated stock, you receive two additional benefits for your generosity: a tax deduction for the total value of the stock and no capital gains on the additional money you made from the appreciation of the stock. Plus, your contribution has a value to AWI now that is far greater than the price you paid for the stock originally.
AWI’s Commitment to Our Donors: We will not sell, share or trade our donors’ names or personal information with any other entity, nor send mailings to our donors on behalf of other organizations. This policy applies to all information received by AWI, both online and offline, as well as any electronic, written, or oral communications. To the extent any donations are processed through a third-party service provider, our donors’ information will only be used for purposes necessary to process the donation.
