The Legacy Society

The American Liver Foundation’s Legacy Society is made up of those donors who are passionate in their commitment to the goal of a world without liver disease.

The Legacy Society recognizes and honors those who have created a planned or deferred gift for the American Liver Foundation to ensure a better future for those living with liver disease. The Legacy Society exists to inspire and stimulate others to join in the quest for a world without liver disease by making a planned gift to the Foundation.

If you have completed estate plans that include the American Liver Foundation, we invite you to become a Legacy Society member. Simply complete this confidential member profile.

If you are considering making a planned gift to the Foundation, please contact us to explore the best options for you and your family. We will assist you on a confidential basis.

Planned Giving Options

Charitable Bequests
A charitable bequest is a gift of property or a sum of money given through your will. A charitable bequest gives you the pleasure of knowing that your generosity will continue to enhance the lives of others.

Life Insurance
Gifts of life insurance are an excellent way to support the American Liver Foundation. You may name the American Liver Foundation as the owner and beneficiary of an existing life insurance policy, which is no longer needed for its intended purpose, or enter into a new insurance contract naming the American Liver Foundation as the owner and beneficiary . You may be able to take a federal tax deduction for the approximate cash value of the donated policy (as allowed by federal tax laws). The American Liver Foundation will immediately begin to receive the dividends from the policy and will ultimately receive the insurance proceeds as well.
