Planned Giving

Secure a Future of Safe and Affordable Homes

It’s easier than you think to make a lasting gift to future generations. When you include APAH in your will or trust, you support the continuing creation of high-quality affordable homes and the delivery of life-changing support and opportunities. Individuals who include APAH in their estate plans are welcomed as members of our Legacy Society.

Whether you would like your donation to make an impact today or go into effect after your lifetime, there is a charitable plan that lets you provide for your family and support APAH and the residents we serve.

Benefits and Options for Planned Giving

Your planned gift to APAH can be designed to fulfill your giving goals and meet your family’s needs. APAH can work with you and your estate advisor, or experts at the Arlington Community Foundation, to explore the best options for you. If you have questions or would like to discuss giving to APAH, please contact Cheryl Ramp, Director of Community Relations at 571.733.9617 or cramp@apah.org.

Sample Gift Language for Your Will or Revocable Living Trust

A gift to APAH in your will or revocable trust enables you to support our mission and make a difference in the lives of future generations. A bequest:

  • is easy to arrange
  • will not alter your current lifestyle in any way
  • can be easily modified to address your changing needs

Making a Specific Gift

Naming APAH as a beneficiary of a specific amount from your estate is easy:

I give and devise to the Arlington Partnership for Affordable Housing, Inc., located in Arlington, VA, the sum of $___________ (or asset) to be used for its general support (or for the support of a specific fund or program).

Making a Residual Gift 

A residual bequest comes to us after your estate expenses and specific bequests are paid:

I give and devise to the Arlington Partnership for Affordable Housing, Inc., located in Arlington, VA, all (or state a percentage) of the rest, residue, and remainder of my estate, both real and personal, to be used for its general support (or for the support of a specific fund or program).

Making a Contingent Gift

APAH can be named as a contingent beneficiary in your will or personal trust if one or more of your specific bequests cannot be fulfilled:

If (insert name) is not living at the time of my demise, I give and devise to the Arlington Partnership for Affordable Housing, Inc., located in Arlington, VA, the sum of $ _______ (or all or a percentage of the residue of my estate) to be used for its general support (or for the support of a specific fund or program).
