Planned Giving – The Legacy of Hope Giving Society

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

Here is some sample language to discuss with your attorney.

If you plan to 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 mzellerbrauer@lesturnerals.org or at 847 745 6021.
