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's research program and community care and support programs.

Planned Giving Guide

Financial Advisors' Guide

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 Associate Director, Major  & Planned Gifts Carol Miller at cmiller@alz.org or 720.635.9991 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), whose office address is at 9370 Olive Blvd. St. Louis, Mo. 63132, _______ (insert either dollar amount or a percentage)." Tax ID 43-1237069.


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.
