The Legacy Society recognizes and honors all individuals who provide support for The Parkinson's Foundation in their wills, trusts, life income gifts, retirement plans, life insurance designations, and other planned gifts. Legacy Society members are recognized in our Annual Report (your gift can remain anonymous) and receive special updates each year from the President and CEO.

To become a member of the Legacy Society, please complete the Letter of Intent for Estate Gifts (PDF) and return to the Office of Planned Giving. The letter of intent will serve as documentation of your gift and will help ensure that your gift is received by us and that it's used the way you want it to be used.
We are happy to provide you with bequest language to include in your estate plans or to discuss planned giving options that may be of interest to you. If you have already included The Parkinson's Foundation in your estate plan, please let us know by completing the Letter of Intent so we can thank you for your generosity and enroll you as our newest Legacy Society member.
