How can you make a Legacy Gift?

  • Include Emberlight Arts in your will or estate plans. Bequest gifts are one of the most popular and flexible ways to make a planned gift. We can support you as you begin the conversation with your tax and legal advisors. Sample bequest language:
    I __________ devise and bequeath to Emberlight Arts, Inc., a non-profit agency registered in the State of Michigan, the sum of $________ (or otherwise describe the gift; often a percentage of the estate is designated) to be used in the furtherance of its mission and general purposes.
  • Designate Emberlight Arts as a partial, full or contingent beneficiary of your life insurance policy.
  • Make a gift from your retirement assets. If you are 70 ½ and you have funds in a company pension plan or IRA you may be able to reduce your taxes by directing a qualified charitable contribution from your IRA to Emberlight Arts.
