Discover the Benefits of Giving Wisely
Leaving a legacy isn't optional. We will certainly be remembered - it's really a question of how. So, when you think about the legacy you hope to leave, make sure you reflect your values and your hopes and dreams for the future - in other words, what really matters to you. If fighting ALS is important to you, we invite you to consider a gift through your estate or financial plan to The ALS Association.

Tip of the Week
Variety is the spice of giving.
You can give almost any kind of highly appreciated property—such as closely-held stock, real estate, partnership interests, or valuable art—to a charitable remainder trust and receive major tax and income benefits.

- Avoid all capital gains tax
- Support the mission of The ALS Association
You can even allow your assets to accumulate tax-free until you "turn on the income spigot" at retirement or some other future event, such as the start of your child's education.
