Other Ways to Give
Create a legacy that will last beyond your lifetime.
We invite you to leave a legacy gift to Bridgeway Academy and make a significant contribution to the organization’s future and its mission to inspire the potential and celebrate the ability of every child.
By making a legacy gift you are ensuring that children with autism and other developmental disabilities will be able to receive the services they need – today and in the future!
You can support Bridgeway Academy as part of your legacy.
- Gifts in a Will (Bequests)
Bequests are gifts are made as part of a will or trust.
- Beneficiary Designations (involving all or part of life insurance, IRA, etc.)
A direct contribution of retirement assets to a charitable organization as part of your estate planning strategy can be very tax efficient and can often mean more funds for the charity of your choice.
- Using a donor-advised fund to make a charitable bequest
If a donor-advised fund is funded through a charitable bequest at the time your will is executed, your taxable estate is reduced by the value of your gift in the same way as any other charitable gift.
For any planned gift or charitable designation, please seek the advice of your estate-planning attorney, financial planner, accountant or tax adviser.
