How To Give

Your gift may be made either directly or through a gift model that can provide tax advantages and/or supplementary income. Click on a gift model below to learn more.

  • Bequest
    Designate ARI as a beneficiary by will, trust or beneficiary designation form.
  • IRA "Charitable Rollover"
    If you are at least age 70½ , make a tax-free gift to ARI from your traditional IRA.
  • Beneficiary Designation Gifts
    Designate ARI as a beneficiary of a retirement, investment or bank account or a life insurance policy.
  • Charitable Gift Annuity
    Transfer cash or appreciated property to ARI in exchange for our promise to pay you an annuity (with rates based on your age) for the rest of your life.
  • Charitable Remainder Unitrust
    Use cash or appreciated property to fund a tax-exempt trust. The trust sells your property tax free and provides you with variable income for life or a term of years
  • Charitable Remainder Annuity Trust
    This version of a charitable remainder trust provides you with fixed income for life or a term of years.
  • Charitable Lead Trust
    Fund a trust that pays income to ARI for a term of years. The trust principal then reverts to you or to your designated beneficiaries. Lead trusts are often used to reduce the tax cost of transferring wealth to heirs.
  • Bargain Sale
    ARI purchases your property for less than fair market value. You receive cash and a charitable deduction for the difference between the market value and purchase price.
  • Life Estate Reserved
    Give your residence or farm to ARI, but retain the right to use the property during your life.
