ACBT Planned Giving


ACBT Planned Giving Program
Designating a Gift or Making a Bequest to the American Council of the Blind of Texas, Inc.

The American Council of the Blind of Texas, Inc. (ACBT) is a non-profit 501(c)(3) charitable organization with its operations primarily dependent on donations and fundraising activities supporting its goals of advancing and enriching the lives of blind and visually impaired Texans through advocacy, education, employment and community involvement.

You can contribute to the future and financial well being of our organization through a will, trust or other planned gift by making a specific bequest to the ACBT. Furthermore, a gift can easily be made by designating ACBT as a beneficiary of a specified life insurance policy, bank account, company retirement plan, pension, IRA account, annuity or other means in which you have the option to designate a beneficiary or contingent beneficiary, using the standard Beneficiary Designation Form.

The ACBT would greatly appreciate your planned gift, which will support our promising future. Our future will include continuing to pursue specialized programs, and the furtherance of fulfilling our mission to work to be an advocacy organization and positive, proactive support system to better the lives of Texans who are blind or visually impaired.

We welcome your decision to designate funds toward a specific project or program within the scope of services we provide, such as annual college scholarships and our biennial legislative leadership program for outstanding blind and visually impaired high school students.
