Create a Lasting Tribute

Honor Someone Special With a Future Gift in Their Name

If you have a loved one who has been impacted by Alzheimer's disease, macular degeneration and/or glaucoma, establishing a memorial or tribute gift is a meaningful way to honor your loved one or celebrate a special occasion such as a birthday while supporting the work of our mission. Your memorial or tribute gift will be a lasting tribute to your loved one and make a difference in the lives of those we serve.

An Example of How It Works

Father and daughter smiling When Sarah's father passed away, she knew she wanted to do something that would establish a lasting legacy for him. She remembered that during his lifetime he was always praising one of BrightFocus' research programs for its tireless efforts to find a treatment or a cure for the disease that affected him.

Sarah decided to make a memorial gift to her father's favorite BrightFocus research program using appreciated securities. Not only will her father's legacy live on thanks to the gift, but Sarah also received a federal income tax charitable deduction and eliminated capital gains tax on the securities.
