Plan for your future and help us fight Alzheimer's
Consider leaving a legacy of support by making a planned gift to the Alzheimer's Association. Planned gifts allow you to combine your charitable giving goals with your estate and financial planning goals. Your gift will provide lasting benefits through our Alzheimer research program and community care and support programs.

Planned gifts for all income levels
We offer planned giving arrangements that are feasible for donors of all income levels. Gifts vary from a simple will bequest to arrangements that help you maintain financial independence through favorable income and tax-saving benefits. Opportunities include gifts from a will bequest, living trust, charitable gift annuity, charitable life income trust, retirement plan, life insurance and real estate. We encourage you to contact our planned gifts staff to discuss your options.

Bequests through wills and trusts
Have you remembered the Alzheimer's Association in your will or trust? Here is sample bequest language you can take to your attorney:

I give to the Alzheimer's Disease and Related Disorders Association, Inc. (the Alzheimer's Association), located at 441 West Kirkpatrick Street, Syracuse, NY 13204, _______ (insert either dollar amount or a percentage) in support of its full mission.

How your gift will be used
You can be assured that your gift will help increase Alzheimer's Association resources to move us toward our vision of a world without Alzheimer's. The Alzheimer's Association national organization exceeds the minimum standards of 65 percent program expense set by the Better Business Bureau's Wise Giving Alliance.

The Founders Society
The Alzheimer’s Association’s Founders Society is an honorary society created to recognize those who have made a lifetime commitment in the battle against Alzheimer’s disease. Hundreds of people have made such a commitment in their estate plans. Members of the Founders Society are entitled to special benefits not available to other Alzheimer’s Association donors:

  • Notices of meetings and other Alzheimer’s Association events
  • News about research and prevention
  • Advocacy updates and information about breakthroughs in the fight against Alzheimer’s
  • Information about substantial charitable estate planning and income tax changes and how members might be affected

By becoming a member of the Founder Society, you will be among others whose commitment to eradicating Alzheimer’s disease has been mirrored in a financial commitment through their estate plan. Please help us – and other others like you – in the fight to conquer Alzheimer’s disease by joining this dedicated group of charitable leaders.
