The Dr. Carroll Behrhorst Legacy Society honors those who partner in our work with indigenous communities in rural Guatemala through a gift in their wills or estate plans.
Become a Legacy Society member today! Below are three examples of ways to set up a planned gift to ALDEA. We recommend you consult your financial or legal advisor to determine the option that’s right for you.
- Name ALDEA as a beneficiary of an insurance policy, IRA, or another retirement account—specify a dollar amount or a percentage. This does not require a will or trust, and the benefits to ALDEA are tax-free!
- Create a “Totten trust” or “payable on death” account at a bank or other financial institution, naming ALDEA as the beneficiary to receive the funds remaining in the account on your death.
- Make a bequest to ALDEA in your will or trust.
Let us know your intent by submitting our Declaration of Intent Form or checking the box on one of our donation envelopes; or contact Jessica at 313-205-4249 or ALDEA@aldeaguatemala.org. And if you have further questions, please don’t hesitate to ask!
Legacy Society members include ALDEA’s full Board and Executive Director. To date, Legacy gifts have totaled more than $295,000—all invested in the long-term future of our work.
