Leave a Legacy
Estate Planning is an important step in building your future. Safeguarding your property and the possessions you have worked so hard for during your lifetime is necessary, because without a plan, a stranger will make the decisions about who receives what was once yours.
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.
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.
