Legacy Planning

Give the gift of a lifetime.

You can support the Hereditary Neuropathy Foundation in many ways, with gifts that do not require an immediate change to your current spending or savings. By considering a planned gift through your estate, life insurance, will or retirement plans, you can achieve your philanthropic goals and ensure that our mission will continue.

Will and Living Trusts

By including a bequest provision in your will or revocable trust, the Hereditary Neuropathy Foundation receives the bequest you specified.

Retirement (IRA’s, Annuities, 401k)

By naming the Hereditary Neuropathy Foundation as a beneficiary of your plan, the assets in those plans will pass directly to our foundation.

Life Insurance

By naming the Hereditary Neuropathy Foundation as a beneficiary (or partial beneficiary) of your existing life insurance policy, the policy amount will pass directly to our foundation.

Personal Property

You can transfer a valuable painting, or other personal property such as automobiles or collectibles, for an immediate tax deduction of the appraised value of the gift(s).

Real Estate Gifts

You can deed a home or vacation property to the Hereditary Neuropathy Foundation. You can continue to use the property rent-free, then the ownership passes to the foundation when you no longer need it.

Income Producing Gifts

There are multiple types of trusts which can be designed to provide income to you now, with the balance directed to the Hereditary Neuropathy Foundation. Consider choices such as Charitable Gift Annuities, Charitable Remainder Trusts, Charitable Lead Trusts, Deferred-payment Gift Annuities and other estate planning options which may be right for you.
