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

You can use this sample language for charitable bequests 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 Steve Schapiro, Director of Development, at or at 847 745 6021.

IRA Charitable Rollover Gifts Permanently Extended – Make a Gift from Your IRA Account Today!

Since the IRA-Charity Rollover is a permanent provision in U.S. tax law, you can make a charitable gift to the Foundation in support directly from your IRA at any time during the year. This tax-free contribution is another great way to bring hope and help to those living with ALS.

We offer a sample letter to make a charity rollover that you can send to your plan provider.
