Leave a Legacy – The Circle of Giving
In the years since Marc Lustgarten passed away from pancreatic cancer, awareness has heightened, funding has increased dramatically, and most importantly the scientific community has made tremendous progress. More than $90 million has been allocated to fund incredible research.
This has all been made possible through private donations made very generously by friends, co-workers and family members who were robbed of their loved one by pancreatic cancer.
The Legacy Circle of Giving is a very special giving opportunity, which creates a partnership between the donor and the Lustgarten Foundation. It enables you to leave a lasting gift that will touch the lives of many families well into the future.
Through The Foundation’s planned giving department, you have a powerful opportunity to ensure that your most important values and commitments are part of the legacy you will leave behind as an example to future generations. Since planned gifts generally come from the accumulated assets of our lifetime, it is an opportunity to make a final statement of support for a cause near to your heart. Planned gifts also ensure that the Foundation will have the resources needed to continue its mission for many years to come.
Planned giving does not have to be complicated-and it is not only reserved for those with great wealth. It can be as simple as adding the Foundation as a beneficiary in your will or as a bequest. Other options are gifts of retirement assets, an IRA, a life insurance policy, and the Lustgarten Foundation as beneficiary of your savings or CD account. The Lustgarten Foundation is also offering Charitable Gift Annuities as an option for giving during your lifetime.
