Planning for the Future

It’s important to start planning ahead at every stage of life, before dealing with all the changes and challenges that come with each transition to a new school and system of services. Even if you have your hands full right now, there are free resources and helpful people available to assist you in getting through today’s concerns so that you can begin planning for the future.

DD Endowment Trust Fund
Considerations in planning for the future may include wills and special needs trusts.  One option for you to explore is the DD Endowment Trust Fund (ETF), administered by The Arc of Washington State. This public/private partnership creates a stable resource to enhance the quality of life for people with developmental disabilities.  For more information, call toll-free 1-888-754-8798 ext. 1 or visit the DD Endowment website.
