Arc of Onondaga has a Planned Giving program, chaired by Arc Board Member and parent Gordon Eyer, to give our friends and supporters another way to help us secure our mission of assisting individuals with developmental disabilities achieve their fullest potential.  Planned Gifts are especially important to realize our vision that all people with developmental disabilities will be respected, contributing citizens who will achieve their fullest potential for independence and inclusion in the community.

Planned Gifts are a way to make a gift through your will or estate plan that can provide you with income and/or tax benefits, while enhancing and ensuring Arc’s future.


Will bequests are charitable gifts with Arc of Onondaga Foundation as the beneficiary.  Your estate will receive a full charitable deduction with no financial commitment now.

Charitable Gift Annuities

Receive an income for life with your charitable gift and qualify for multiple tax benefits.  A donation of cash or assets to Arc of Onondaga Foundation in exchange for a lifetime stream of annual income from the gift.

Gifts of Life Insurance

A great way to give a planned gift without added financial burden.  A gift of a new or old policy with Arc of Onondaga Foundation as the owner and beneficiary.
