Make a Planned Gift
Leave a lasting legacy and help conquer Alzheimer’s disease through a planned gift. Such gifts can provide financial and tax benefits during your lifetime while supporting our mission to find effective drugs for Alzheimer's disease and related dementias. There are many 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.
You can designate the ADDF as a beneficiary of a will or living trust using the following language:
"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.
Charitable gift annuities, lead trusts, and remainder trusts offer tax benefits and fixed payments to you throughout your lifetime.
Designating the ADDF as a beneficiary of a retirement account or life insurance policy is another way to give.
