Every year the Les Turner ALS Foundation receives meaningful gifts from individuals who have made provisions in their will, trust or other estate plan.
You can provide under your will or living trust agreement not only for your loved ones, but for organizations like the Les Turner ALS Foundation, which have made a difference in your life. When making or revising your will or trust you should obtain the assistance of an attorney. Your attorney will tell you how you can:
• Give a specific dollar amount
• Give a share or entire residue of your estate
• Give personal property
• Give real estate
If you provide for the Les Turner ALS Foundation through your estate plan, please let us know so we may acknowledge and thank you. There may be no better way to celebrate the life and memory of a loved one than through a gift in support of their dream, whether it is finding a cure for ALS or providing compassionate support services to those currently battling the disease.
For more information, contact Maria Zeller Brauer, Development Manager, at email@example.com or (847) 745-6021.
Workplace giving is an easy and effective way to give to the Les Turner ALS Foundation. Whether you work for a private company or a public organization, you can use the ease and convenience of a payroll deduction to make your gift or have your employer match your charitable contributions.
Did you know your contribution could be doubled or tripled with just a few minutes? If your employer offers matching contributions, just obtain the necessary paperwork from your human resources department, complete the donor section, and send it to us along with your gift. If you've already sent in your gift, you can still send us the completed form or online donation information. Please search our matching gifts database to see if your company participates in matching gifts.
Once we’ve received your information, we’ll take care of the rest!
