Plan for tomorrow. Plan for a cure.
“Down the line, there will be a cure and you will want to know that you
were a part of it.”

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
Be the rich eccentric relative you wish you had.
You don't have to be rich (or eccentric) to make a generous, long-lasting gift.
- Make a gift right now that costs you nothing during your lifetime.
- Save on taxes by giving appreciated stocks, bonds, or mutual fund shares.
- Donate life insurance you no longer need.
- Use a gift to reduce your estate tax exposure and eliminate capital gains.
- Receive lifetime income back from us in return for your gift, and pass more of your assets to your heirs.
Planned gifts make it possible to support the mission of The ALS Association in a far more significant way than you ever thought possible.
