Ways to Leave a Legacy

This method provides the most flexibility since the gift fluctuates according to the size of the estate.

Fixed Amount
The most common way to make a bequest is to include a fixed amount to be left to the designated organization.

A donation is made of the remainder of funds after all debts, taxes, expenses, and other bequests have been fulfilled.

Life Insurance
Naming APF as a beneficiary of a life insurance policy can provide a fixed amount separate from other assets.

Retirement Plan
Name APF as a beneficiary of a percentage of your retirement plan or IRA. This eliminates income taxation on distributions after your lifetime and can generally be updated online through your plan provider at any time.

Life Income
You can make a bequest as a gift to charity that can also provide lifetime payments to any individual(s) you designate.
