Consider Leaving a Legacy to ARI

Another wonderful way you can support ARI is to remember us in your will.  You can continue to help ARI, even after you’re gone. We will be happy to provide information on ways to do this and possible ways to help such as:

  • Purchase a life insurance policy and name ARI as a beneficiary.
  • Remember your loved ones with a charitable gift to ARI – in their honor.
  • Name ARI as the beneficiary of your pension plan or IRA.

Discuss with your tax advisor the advantages you can enjoy now by leaving a gift to ARI or other charity that you would like to support.
