Planned Giving and Bequests


Through an estate or planned gift, you can help ensure a vital future for Ascentria Care Alliance and those we serve. There are several ways to support our clients and programs through your planning:

Will and Living Trust Bequests

  • Include Ascentria Care Alliance in your will or living trust.
  • You can bequeath a specific dollar amount or a percentage of your estate.
  • Your bequest is deductible for federal estate tax purposes to the full extent allowed by law.

Suggested Language: I hereby give, devise and bequeath to Ascentria Care Alliance, a non-profit public benefit corporation located at 14 East Worcester Street, Suite 300, Worcester, MA 01604, _____ percent of my estate (or, the sum of $_____).

Life Insurance Policies and IRAs

  • Name Ascentria Care Alliance as the beneficiary of an IRA or insurance policy.
  • IRAs usually require some form of tax payment when funds are distributed, but by naming Ascentria Care Alliance as the beneficiary, taxes are avoided since we are a non-profit organization.

Charitable Remainder Trusts

  • Establish a charitable remainder trust and provide yourself, or your designated beneficiaries, with an annual income, usually for life, with the remainder of the donated assets benefiting Ascentria Care Alliance at maturity.
  • Charitable trusts offer the donor potential gift and estate tax benefits.

Brook Farm Society

  • If you have made a commitment to a planned gift, you automatically qualify as a Brook Farm Society member; simply advise us of your plans.
  • Ascentria recognizes and honors the generosity and vision of planned giving donors through our Brook Farm Society, named after our first program founded in 1871.
  • The Brook Farm Society ensures that our mission is perpetuated by means of charitable giving.
  • Brook Farm Society membership involves no dues or obligations of any kind, and you may give anonymously.
