Planned Gifts

Legacy gifts, or planned gifts, are made in the future upon your passing. These gifts make a significant impact on our ability to provide programs and services to meet the needs of people with epilepsy today, and in the future. Legacy gifts are an effective way for you to reduce income and estate taxes passed on to heirs and make a larger gift. These gifts may be in the form of a bequest, naming us as the beneficiary of a life insurance policy or retirement account, or a Charitable Remainder Trust.

Consult your financial advisor or estate planning attorney when making the decision to give a planned gift.
