The Founders Society
The Founders Society is an honorary society created by the Alzheimer's Association as a way of bringing those who make a bequest or lifetime gift into our extended family. As a Founders Society member, you become eligible to receive the following:
Lifetime security gifts are designed for those individuals who wish to accomplish dual goals: First, to make a significant gift to the Alzheimer's Association; and Second, to provide a measure of financial security for the donor's future.
A Charitable Gift Annuity is an agreement between you and the Alzheimer's Association in which you receive a partial charitable deduction at the time of your gift and annual payments based on your life expectancy.
In a Charitable Remainder Unitrust, your income is based on a percentage (at least 5%) of the value of your trust that is revalued annually. Accordingly, your yearly payments may vary relative to the annual changes in the value of your trust.
In a Charitable Remainder Annuity Trust, the payment is a fixed percentage (never less than 5%) of the value of the assets. This means that a fixed dollar amount is paid each year, regardless of how the trust investments perform.
Bequests are gifts made through a will or trust. Through a Will you may bequeath cash, personal property or real estate. You may designate a specific cash gift, a percentage of your estate or the remainder of your estate after other bequests, taxes and fees have been paid.
