Choose the Gift That's Right for You

  • Leave a bequest in your will or trust. This costs you nothing now and can be made at any age or income level. Your bequest may be made for a specific dollar amount, a percentage of your total estate, or the residual amount (after expenses have been paid). 


  • Make a gift directly from your IRA. If you’re age 70 ½ or older, you can save on income tax by making a donation to the AOF directly from your Individual Retirement Account (IRA).


  • Make a gift by beneficiary designation. Name the AOF a beneficiary of any of these types of accounts, and you can help the AOF for years to come:
    • Retirement Accounts
    • Life Insurance Policies
    • Bank or Brokerage Account
    • Certificates of Deposit
    • Donor Advised Funds
    • Common Stock


As with any planned gift, please consult with your attorney and/or tax advisor before making any decision.
