Give to A.R.E. Through a Bequest in a Will

Members and friends of A.R.E. often tell us they would like to make a significant gift to A.R.E. but are hesitant to part with assets they may need in the future. This concern is understandable. Thankfully, it is possible to leave a meaningful legacy to A.R.E. without neglecting personal or family obligations. Many have "given back" to A.R.E. through a charitable bequest in their will.

A bequest is the most common way to provide for the future of A.R.E. With this type of gift, you direct in your will that certain money or property be transferred to A.R.E.

Unrestricted Bequest

Your unrestricted gift by will is especially helpful in providing for the work of A.R.E. This type of bequest is used to support the Edgar Cayce Endowment Fund. The earnings from the Edgar Cayce Endowment Fund are used to benefit the greatest needs of this work.

Restricted Bequest

A restricted bequest is a gift that must be used for a specific purpose(s). This is a great way to support the future of a program that is particularly meaningful to you.
