Leave a Legacy in support of liver research

Planned giving represents sustainability for educational grants, research awards, fellowships, and educational programming. The Legacy Society recognizes those donors who make qualifying gifts, such as bequests, trusts, and annuities. As a Legacy Society member, you help provide a secure future for the field of hepatology and the research that leads to improved treatments of patients with liver disease.

Once you have decided to make your legacy gift, be sure to let us know – and we will add you to the list of Legacy Society donors.

Planned gifts will be used to support liver research and advanced hepatology training for frontline providers.

Ways to Give

The easiest way to leave a legacy in support of liver research is through a bequest in your estate plans. Just a few sentences in your will or trust are all that is needed. Share the sample bequest language for the AASLD Foundation with your estate planning attorney to help secure the future of hepatology.

Appreciated Securities/Stock
A stock portfolio is often among the most valuable assets you own – and one that can carry substantial capital gain, or appreciation in value. With careful planning, you can reduce or even eliminate federal capital gains tax while supporting liver research.

Memorial and Honorary Gifts: Getting Started

If you have a family member or friend whose life has been touched by The AASLD Liver Research Fund, we hope you'll consider making a gift to us in honor of that person.

Planning for a Financially Secure Retirement

Being ready for a financially secure retirement takes planning that begins early and never really ends. Children grow up. Incomes rise or fall. The time left between work and retirement narrows. Let's focus on best practices during the ages of 55 to 69.
