For many individuals, supporting the work of Ability Beyond Disability has become second nature. When a charity asks for help, they think nothing of writing a check and sending it off. All of us give for different reasons and many of us give for different reasons at different times. We are all richer than others and poorer than others, depending upon our perspective at any given time. Both wealthy and those who aren't wealthy contribute to charitable organizations, so the amount of money one has doesn't necessarily have a bearing on how willing they are to part with it for the good of others.
Some of us are just so grateful for what we have that we want to share with others. We feel blessed by our station in life and want to help others to have a better life.
In fact, for Ability Beyond Disability, contributions from individuals are typically our greatest sources of funding. And much of this support is from outright gifts, raised generally through annual fundraising campaigns and capital campaigns.
While you may be particularly passionate about our work, you may also feel that you are currently limited in the amount of financial support you can offer. You may worry about outliving your resources and have concerns that a large charitable donation might impact your future financial security. Or you may be unwilling to do anything that could reduce the size of the estate you hope to pass on to your spouse or heirs.
These are legitimate concerns. However, charitable giving is not just about outright gifts. There are other giving options available that can allow you to assist Ability Beyond Disability without compromising your financial security.
These options are known as planned gifts, and they can include a wide variety of gift assets from cash and marketable securities to a family home or other real estate to closely held business assets, mineral rights, and intellectual property.
Whether you are concerned about lifetime income, the continued beneficial use of a property, or providing for family members, a planned gift may be the solution you need.
