legacy giving

Leave a gift to the Anacortes Family Center in your will or estate plan (a process known as planned giving), and you’ll be making a commitment to our community’s most vulnerable.

Your gift, no matter the size, will have an enduring impact for generations to come. Planned gifts are critical to developing sustainability for our programs and growing to meet evolving needs.

how planned giving works

Making a legacy gift begins with adding the Anacortes Family Center to your will. If you’ve already written a will and you’d like to add AFC, contact your attorney to prepare a document called a codicil. You may give to AFC in a variety of ways:

  • Indicate that you’d like to leave a specific sum of money to AFC

  • Gift a piece of property: this may be a home, a car, art, or jewelry

  • Designate a percentage of your estate to AFC: a good choice if you’re unsure what your total estate may be worth
