Living Legacy -The Arc of Hilo receives annual support from individuals, governmental agencies, and foundations. As the economy changes for Hawai‘i so do these sources of support creating a need to develop alternative sources of income. Legacy gifts from individual donors through wills and trusts are good options. You may include a donation to The Arc of Hilo in your will, trust or estate plan. Speak to your attorney about the simple step of adding a codicil to name The Arc of Hilo as a beneficiary. Designating The Arc of Hilo as a beneficiary under a retirement/401(k) plan or an insurance policy would have a lasting impact.
