You can become a philanthropist with a gift that is planned today and realized after your lifetime.
Creating a legacy
With the addition of a provision in your will or trust, you can designate the Arizona Community Foundation or an Affiliate to receive a percentage or specific amount from your estate, or take advantage of more sophisticated strategies—like giving instruments that provide an income stream to meet current financial needs.
Family or community? You don't have to choose
If current financial, business or family obligations are keeping you from charitable giving, rest assured that you don't have to choose between family and charity. You can serve both with a planned gift, possibly saving your family money by decreasing estate and inheritance taxes.
You may elect today how your gift will be used in the community after your lifetime by completing a non-binding Testamentary Fund Agreement. This revocable agreement allows you to name the fund your gift will create, identify any fund advisors, specify your charitable interest areas and even express a desire for anonymity. If you change your mind at any time, we can simply amend the agreement without any costs or legal assistance.
