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

Determine Your Own Legacy

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.

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.
