If providing compassionate care to people living with ALS, funding research for treatments and a cure and advancing public policy are important to you, we invite you to consider a bequest through your will or living trust to The ALS Association. Below is language you can provide to your financial adviser for including our chapter in your will or living trust:
This is an outright bequest and is usually a gift of a stated sum of money.
"I give $25,000 to The ALS Association (insert Chapter Name), (insert City), (insert State), for its general purposes."
Percentage of remainder:
This bequest gives a percentage of what is left of your estate after taking care of loved ones.
"I give The ALS Association (insert Chapter Name), (insert City), (insert State), __ percent of the rest, residue and remainder of my estate, for its general purposes."
You can arrange your bequest so that it is made on the condition that a certain event must occur before distribution to our chapter.
"I give $20,000 to my daughter Shelly, provided she survives me; otherwise, I give it to The ALS Association (insert Chapter Name), (insert City), (insert State), for its general purposes."
One of the reasons bequests are so popular is that you can change your beneficiaries at any time. No matter which type of bequest you choose, your generosity will have left a lasting legacy on people living with ALS and those who love them.
