Planned Giving

How will you be remembered?

The Alpha Legacy Circle honors and recognizes donors who have included Alpha Supported Living Services in their estate plans. All planned gifts are welcome and important to Alpha, and there is no minimum to be a member. When you include Alpha in your estate plan, you are taking your place as a champion for people with intellectual and developmental disabilities.


A bequest is the easiest and most meaningful way to provide for the future of Alpha. A bequest is a gift made through your estate, either directed by your will or through a trust distribution. Making a legacy gift in your will or trust is one of the easiest and most popular ways to ensure that the mission of Alpha will continue for decades to come.

Donate Stock:

Your gift of stock will make an impact for children and adults with intellectual and developmental disabilities and can help you save on your taxes. Please contact Alpha’s Development Department at 206-284-9130 before making a transfer, so we can help ensure that the process is straightforward.

Retirement funds gift:

You can name Alpha as a beneficiary of an IRA or other retirement fund to reduce taxes. This can be one of the most tax-wise ways to make a legacy gift. What’s more, giving a significant gift like this is as simple as contacting the firm that holds your assets and asking them for a beneficiary form to fill out. With a gift from your retirement plan, insurance plan or other assets, you support the mission of Alpha, and your gift has an impact that lasts for years to come.
