For many donors, naming a charity in a will or living trust is an efficient way to ensure that their philanthropic goals are met. This type of gift is called a bequest.
You can designate a certain dollar amount, a percentage of your estate, or even specific property, such as your aircraft, to the AOPA Foundation through your will or trust.
Making a gift in this manner is an easy and effective way to provide a legacy that will preserve the freedom to fly for future generations and may also offer you tax-saving benefits. You don’t even need to re-write your documents! A simple codicil to a will or addendum to your trust may be all you need.
To help you get started, we invite you to use FreeWill*: an online estate planning service that makes it easy and cost-free to create your will or trust, and include the necessary language to support the AOPA Foundation in your plans. Get started here.
