Planned Giving

Members of the Abilis Legacy Society demonstrate exceptional foresight and generosity by providing future support for the work Abilis does to provide the most vulnerable members of our communities with lives of joy, dignity and respect.

Membership in the Abilis Legacy Society is easy to achieve.  Individuals who make a current or deferred planned gift become permanent members of the Society.  A planned gift may take a variety of forms.  It may be through a life income plan such as an Abilis Charitable Gift Annuity or a charitable remainder trust.  A gift of real estate or  transfers of the benefits of a life insurance policy to Abilis qualify an individual for membership in the Society. Leaving a bequest to Abilis in a will or trust accompanied by a signed Declaration of Intent secures membership for a deferred contribution. Designating Abilis as a beneficiary of a retirement plan such as an IRA or 401(k) is a deferred gift that entitles an individual to membership in the Society.

Contributors to the Circle of Caring Campaign – building an endowment for Abilis – will also be entitled to membership in the Abilis Legacy Society.

In recognition of your planned gift to Abilis, your name will be inscribed on a display of members’ names to be on permanent display at the Abilis offices in Greenwich, CT.

The Abilis Legacy Society – leaving the world a little better than you found it.
