Discover the Benefits of Giving Wisely!

GIFT OPTIONS
There are many ways you can donate to the Air & Space Forces Association.

Bequests
Through a simple provision in your will, you may make a gift to the Air & Space Forces Association. This is the easiest and most common type of planned gift. Making a bequest is an excellent choice if you want to maintain control of your assets during your lifetime and support the Air & Space Forces Association in the future.

We can work with you and your advisors to craft specific bequest language that accurately reflects your gift intentions.

Sample Language
I give, devise and bequeath to the Air & Space Forces Association, located in Arlington, VA. the sum of _________________ dollars or ____% of the Residue of my estate. (Or otherwise describe the gift).

If you do not have an attorney, please call your local American Bar Association. Also, the Air & Space Forces Association partners with PlannedGiving.com.

Revocable Living Trust
A living trust, also known as a revocable living trust or a family trust, is a legal document that holds title or ownership to your real property and assets. When you create a revocable living trust, you transfer ownership of your assets to the trust. Transferring assets is typically called “funding.” When you transfer title you DO NOT relinquish any control. You can still buy, sell, borrow or transfer.

To many, the living trust looks a lot like a will. It includes the details and instructions for how you want your estate to be handled at your death. Unlike a will, a properly funded trust:

Does not go through probate.
Prevents the courts from controlling your assets at incapacity.
Allows you to name beneficiaries including the Air & Space Forces Association
