Legacy and Planned Giving

Advance mental health for years to come by establishing a lasting legacy for you and your family.

Planned giving allows you to make charitable gifts now or later, while enjoying financial benefits for you and your family by utilizing your estate assets rather than disposable income.

There are many options for legacy and planned giving:

  • A bequest in your will or living trust

  • A charitable gift annuity

  • A charitable remainder trust or unitrust

  • A charitable lead trust

  • An endowment fund

  • Retirement plan assets

  • Life insurance policies

  • Outright gift

We encourage you to consult your legal or financial advisor to determine which option is best for you. Once selected, we are ready to assist. Your contribution will make a difference—in both meeting your individual and family goals, as well as in strengthening the American Psychiatric Association Foundation.

To learn more about your planned giving options, email contact us.
