Estate Planning

Leave Your Legacy With a Planned Gift

When you leave a gift to The Arc Central Chesapeake Region through your estate, you become part of our Hake Society, ensuring that you’re impacting people with intellectual and developmental disabilities and your community not just today but far into the future.


Making a charitable bequest to The Arc means including us in your will. Your long-term gift keeps our work going for decades and generations to come. 


Special Needs Trust

You can name The Arc as a remainder beneficiary of the trust that manages your child’s care. There is no impact on the direction or funding to your child during their life, and after their passing, all or a portion of what remains can be a gift to The Arc.


If you’re 70 1/2 or older, you can make a gift to The Arc from your IRA. This is a tax-savvy way to support The Arc’s work in the community.
