Announcing the American Council of the Blind Legacy Society

One of the key elements to the success of any not-for-profit organization is the development and implementation of a robust and diversified resource development plan. To accomplish this goal, the American Council of the Blind board of directors and staff have been working extremely hard to enhance its short-term and long-term fundraising efforts by expanding existing programs and establishing new initiatives.
 
One of these new initiatives, which will be known as the ACB Legacy Society, is aimed at increasing the number of planned gifts that will be made to ACB through the estate planning process, not only by friends of the organization, but also by those interested in our purposes. The Legacy Society has the potential to become an important resource development component that will help to ensure a bright financial future for ACB. If anyone you know might be interested in making a planned gift to ACB, refer them to the following announcement about the ACB Legacy Society, which will also appear on the ACB web site.
 
In an effort to be more proactive, ACB created the legacy society to honor and recognize individuals who have included ACB in their estate plans via a bequest or another type of planned gift and have communicated their intentions to ACB. According to ACB president Kim Charlson, “We wanted to acknowledge individuals for including ACB in their wills while they were still alive so we could thank them for their interest in perpetuating ACB’s good work for years to come.”
 
For more information about the legacy society, or to communicate your intentions of including ACB in your estate plans, contact Tom Tobin, director of development, at ttobin@acb.org or by calling 1-800-424-8666.
 
We thank you for considering ACB’s future financial needs!
