Planned gifts to the Alzheimer's Drug Discovery Foundation provide financial and tax benefits during your lifetime while helping the ADDF fulfill our mission to accelerate the discovery of drugs to prevent, treat, and cure Alzheimer's disease and related dementias.

There are numerous ways to make a planned gift to the ADDF. Our team can assist you in determining which options are best to achieve your personal philanthropic objectives. We also recommend consulting an attorney or other advisor to ensure your bequest meets the needs of your estate plan.

For a will or living trust, you may use the following language to make your gift: "I bequeath [dollar amount/percentage] to the Alzheimer’s Drug Discovery Foundation, a New York State not-for-profit organization." If you already have a will or living trust, you may add the ADDF as a beneficiary through a codicil or trust amendment. Bequests to the ADDF are not subject to estate tax.
