Estate and Planned Giving
Protect Our Future
Since 1981, individual gifts to the Cornelia de Lange Syndrome (CdLS) Foundation have been its mainstay. This solid support has made possible the unique programs and services offered by the nation’s only organization dedicated exclusively to helping those with CdLS and their families. To assure this vital work continues, the Foundation must look to its benefactors, both now and in the future.
You can assure that your legacy continues long after you are gone through a variety of planned gifts, including bequests (View sample bequest language), Charitable and Special Needs Trusts, and other estate gifts, including IRAs, retirement accounts and life insurance policies.
Some of the largest and most transformative donations given to charitable organizations have been legacy gifts from the estates of supporters. That’s why it is important for those of you who believe in the mission of the CdLS Foundation to carefully consider a gift that enhances your legacy and the Foundation’s.
A planned gift to the Cornelia de Lange Syndrome Foundation is easy to arrange, will not alter your current lifestyle, and can be easily modified to address your changing needs.
