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.
