AFE’s Legacy Circle

The Legacy Circle is an honorary organization composed of persons who have made provision for a planned gift to AFE through a bequest, a life insurance policy, a trust, or otherwise, such as a retirement plan beneficiary designation.

Planting the Seeds of Tomorrow

Legacy gifts help provide long-term financial security in support of our mission. There is no minimum gift requirement to join the Legacy Circle, and the benefits are many. For example:

  • Planned gifts afford you flexibility to provide for your family and support AFE.
  • Certain planned gifts may reduce estate or capital gains taxes.
  • Planned gifts need not affect your cash flow during your lifetime.
  • Certain types of planned gifts allow you to support AFE while also providing income for the rest of your life — or a fixed income for a loved one.
  • The joy of knowing that your legacy gift will sustain AFE’s programs for years to come is the ultimate benefit!

Choose from a Variety of Planned Giving Options:
