Giving Through Your Estate
Designate the AACR as Your Beneficiary
Like Beverly Aisenbrey, you can designate the American Association for Cancer Research (AACR) in your will or living trust by incorporating language to describe your gift of a specific dollar amount, a percentage of your estate, or a piece of property. Consider naming the AACR as a beneficiary of a life insurance policy or a retirement plan.
When you include a provision in your will or living trust to benefit the AACR, you provide essential resources to sustain discovery and innovation in lifesaving cancer research and the prevention of cancer for years to come. Your legacy will be helping ensure the AACR’s ability to advance important scientific initiatives, such as groundbreaking cancer research to treat and prevent cancer for future generations.
Bequests in your will or trust or by beneficiary designation cost you nothing now – you can hold on to your assets for as long as you need them – and you can change your beneficiaries at any time. To notify us of a gift or to discuss which gift option is best for you, contact us today.
