Bequests - naming the Alzheimer's Association in your will
The following language can be taken to your professional counsel:
"I [name] of [city, state, ZIP] give, devise and bequeath to the Mid South Chapter of the Alzheimer's Disease and Related Disorders Association (Alzheimer's Association) [insert written amount of gift, percentage of estate or residuary of the estate or description of property] for its unrestricted use and purpose."
Charitable Gift Annuities
The Alzheimer's Association offers charitable gift annuities, which are simple contracts between a donor and a charity (such as the Alzheimer's Association), to pay the donor a fixed amount, usually quarterly, for the rest of his or her life, in exchange for an initial gift of $5,000 or more.
Gift annuities are easy to establish and offer a tax deduction at the time of the initial gift. In addition, a portion of the lifetime payments made to the annuitant may be tax-free. Gift annuities may be established for one or two annuitants and may be funded with cash or appreciated stock.
