Wills and Living Trusts
Would you like to leave money to Alzheimer's Disease Research, Macular Degeneration Research, and/or National Glaucoma Research in your will? Do you also want the flexibility to change your will in the event that life circumstances change? You can do both.
In as little as one sentence, you can complete your gift. This type of donation to Alzheimer's Disease Research, Macular Degeneration Research, and/or National Glaucoma Research in your will or living trust helps ensure that we continue our mission for years to come.

An Example of How It Works
Meet Tom and Martha. When they got married and created a will, they included a $75,000 gift to one of our programs. As the family grew to include three children, Tom and Martha decided to revise their gift to ensure their children's future financial security.
They met with their attorney and revised the gift language so that one of our research programs received a percentage of their estate, instead of a specific amount. Tom and Martha now rest easy knowing their plans will provide for the people and charitable work they love.
