Did you know there are creative ways to support the National Ability Center? Ways in which the National Ability Center, you and your loved ones all benefit at the same time? Such giving techniques are called “planned gifts”, because with thoughtful planning, you create win-win solutions. For example:


  • You can make a gift that costs nothing during your lifetime.
  • You can give stock and realize larger tax savings.
  • You can get income for life when you make your gift.
  • You can donate your house, continue to live there and get a tax break all at the same time.

To get started, notify the National Ability Center of your intent to make a planned gift. Then contact your investment or tax advisor to determine the best strategy to do so. Below you can find just some examples of how you can match your goals while benefitting in the process.
