Planned Giving and Creating Your Legacy

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.

You're never too young.

Planning ahead is not just for the elderly. Neither are planned gifts. Right now you may be focused on accumulating assets and providing for your family obligations. But you can also support our mission in a long-lasting way. It's easier than you think. We are so grateful for your loyalty and generosity support, and we offer giving techniques that fit your circumstances now and maximize your ability to give. Please contact us and we'll tell you more about the giving tools that work well for younger donors.
