Planned Giving

Whether you give through your will, estate, Donor-Advised Fund, IRA rollover or other planned giving vehicle, join us in shaping AbleLight’s future.

Planned Gifts

Including AbleLight in your will or revocable living trust can be a lasting gift on the lives of people with developmental disabilities that costs you nothing today. To help you get started on your plans and legacy, you can use FreeWill, an online tool that guides you through the process of creating your estate plan. You can use this resource on its own, or use it to document your wishes before finalizing your plans with an attorney.

Have you already included a gift in your will or trust? Please fill out this form to let us know!  We would love to thank you for your generosity.

Non-probate Assets

Do you have an IRA, 401(k), life-insurance policy, or any other assets not included in your will? If so, these are called non-probate assets and you must plan your beneficiaries for them separately. Use this online tool to make your plans and designate us as a beneficiary of one or more of these assets.

Donor Advised Funds

Donors with an advised fund (DAF) can recommend a grant from their fund to AbleLight.

*What you will provide to the donor/ advisor:

600 Hoffman Dr.
Watertown, WI 53094
Federal Tax ID # 39-0806446 (also known as EIN)

*Reminder- Individuals who make a gift (recommend a grant) from their DAF receive their deduction when the gift was placed into the donor advised fund, as such they do not receive a traditional tax letter, please reach out with any questions.

You can also connect to our DAF search engine for more information.
