A will is the easiest and most effective means to ensure that you fully provide for your family and that your assets are distributed as you wish. Gifts by will, or bequests, both large and small, are very important to the Alliance for Lupus Research (ALR). A bequest through your will provides much needed support for lupus research.
You may bequeath a gift to the ALR in the form of a dollar amount, a specific property, a percentage of your estate, or what remains after your loved ones have been provided for. Bequests to the Alliance for Lupus Research are entirely free from federal estate tax, and there is no limit on the amount you can leave to the ALR in your will. 100% of all donations (in dollars) to the ALR support scientific research into the prevention, treatment and cure for lupus.
To make a bequest to the Alliance for Lupus Research, the following language will be helpful to your lawyer:
"I give, devise, and bequest to the Alliance for Lupus Research, Inc., a nonprofit 501(c)(3) Corporation, headquartered at 28 West 44th Street, Suite 501, New York, NY 10036-6600 USA, the sum of $_____ (or "the rest, residue and remainder of my estate") to be used for lupus research."
