Welcome to APLA Health

Legacy Giving

Legacy giving is a way to leave a meaningful legacy to APLA Health and to ensure the ongoing viability of our organization.

The Legacy Society honors those who have remembered APLA Health in their estate plans. These gifts help ensure healthcare equity and promote the well-being for the LGBT and other underserved communities and people living with and affected by HIV.


There are a number of planned gift options, most of which offer considerable tax benefits. Estates both large and small can benefit from planned giving and make a significant impact on APLA Health.

  • Bequest (Will or Living Trust)
  • Beneficiary Designation (life insurance or IRA)
  • Charitable Remainder Trust
  • Charitable Lead Trust
  • Retained Life Estate


  • Cash
  • Publicly traded securities
  • Retirement plan assets
  • Personal residence, vacation home, or other real estate
  • Life insurance policies
  • Closely held stock
  • Family limited partnership interests
  • Collections
  • Other assets of value

Please consult with your professional advisor to determine if an estate gift is right for you. Your advisors can help you explore the possibilities and identify ways to maximize the financial and tax benefits of an estate gift. APLA Health also offers free information to help you explore these options further.

Joining the Legacy Society is as easy as completing, signing, and returning this letter of provision.

Legacy Society

Planned giving is the marriage of philanthropy and sound financial planning. By making a bequest to APLA Health through a will or trust, naming APLA Health as a beneficiary of a life insurance policy or retirement plan, or creating a life income plan to support APLA Health, these donors are forging a lasting legacy that benefits the people they most care for, and those who depend on APLA Health for services.

We extend our gratitude to the following individuals who have named APLA Health in their estate plans.
