Planned Giving

The Leukemia Research Foundation is profoundly grateful for the support provided by donors who have committed to planned gifts sustaining our mission into the future. Through their generosity, they have created meaningful legacies for future generations.

Benefits of planned giving

Please consider including a gift to the Leukemia Research Foundation in your will or living trust. Your gift offers the below benefits.


Just a few sentences in your will or trust are all that is needed. The suggested bequest language for the Leukemia Research Foundation is:

"I, [name], of [city, state, zip], give, devise and bequeath to Leukemia Research Foundation [written amount or percentage of the estate or description of property] for its general purposes."


Because you are not making a gift until after your lifetime, you can change your mind at any time.


You can structure the bequest to leave a specific item or amount of money, make the gift contingent on certain events, or leave a percentage of your estate to the Leukemia Research Foundation.

Tax relief

If your estate is subject to estate tax, your gift may be entitled to an estate tax charitable deduction for the gift's full value.
