Planned Gifts

Ensuring the Future of the Cayce Legacy

A planned gift is a wonderful way to provide for the future of A.R.E. You will have the satisfaction of knowing that your gift will continue to help people for generations to come. Gifts may be designated for an A.R.E. program that is particularly meaningful to you, or they may be left unrestricted to be used where they are needed most.

What is a Planned Gift?

A planned gift is made as part of your overall financial and estate plan, like adding A.R.E. to your will. It is a gift made from assets instead of income, such as stock or real estate. These types of gifts may require the help of a professional - your lawyer, financial advisor, tax advisor, and/or an A.R.E. development officer. Planned gifts also have many potential tax benefits.

Benefits of Leaving a Charitable Bequest to A.R.E.

Combine Your Legacy with Edgar Cayce's

Bequests allow you to determine the legacy you leave behind. You will have the satisfaction of knowing that your gift will continue to help change lives for the better well into the future through the A.R.E.

Make a Significant Impact

Bequests often allow individuals to make much larger gifts than they thought possible. This is especially appealing to those who want to make a considerable impact but feel like they do not have the means to do so during their lifetimes.

Lessen the Impact of Taxes on Your Estate

Gifts to the A.R.E., the Edgar Cayce Foundation, or Atlantic University are 501 (c) (3) non-profit tax deductions. Careful estate planning with the help of a financial or legal expert may help you avoid federal and state estate taxes.
