Planned Giving

What is Planned Giving?

  • Planned giving involves charitable gifts designated during a donor’s lifetime with benefits that may not be realized until a future time, generally at the death of the donor or beneficiary.
  • Planned giving can offer easy and creative ways to support the mission of the AHC Foundation —by utilizing cash gifts, stock, bonds, life insurance policies and retirement plan assets such as an IRA or 401(k).
  • A planned gift can benefit you and your family and have a meaningful impact on the mission of the AHCF, beyond your lifetime and far into the future.
  • Planned giving may provide an opportunity to reduce or eliminate estate taxes, reduce income taxes or reduce or eliminate capital gains taxes.

Who can make a Planned Gift?

  • Anyone can make a planned gift, regardless of age, occupation, or financial means.

Why make a Planned Gift?

  • When you work together with the AHC Foundation to establish a planned gift, you leave a lasting legacy that will help thousands for generations to come. Certain planned gifts can have financial benefits for you or your family. Consult with your tax advisor, attorney, and/or financial planner for more details.

What is a simple way to get started with a planned gift?

  • You can make a planned gift in only a few minutes.
  • One simple way is to name the Alternating Hemiplegia of Childhood Foundation in your will. Designate a specific amount or a percentage of the estate.

    “I give to the Alternating Hemiplegia of Childhood Foundation $xxxx  (or x%) from my estate that it may use in any way to further its mission.” 

    “I give to the Alternating Hemiplegia of Childhood Foundation x% of a stock, bond that it may use in any way to further its mission.” 

  • Call AHCF at (313) 663-7772 or email for more ideas. It is that easy!

How do I know which Planned Gifts would be right for me and my family?

  • The AHC Foundation and its representatives are not engaged in legal or tax advisory service.
