1.47 AFSP Announces New Planned Giving Campaign
Supporters Asked to Consider Bequests, Other Planned Gifts
As part of an effort to increase support for suicide prevention research, education and advocacy, as well as for programs for survivors of suicide loss, AFSP has launched a new campaign to ask for bequests, gifts of life insurance and other planned gifts. To recognize generous individuals who have included AFSP in their long-term plans, through a bequest, life-income gift, or other planned gift, the Foundation has established the Lifesavers Society.
In announcing this new campaign, AFSP has made it possible to make a planned gift in memory of a loved one and they can also be directed to a specific aspect of the Foundation’s work. Generally, such gifts to AFSP made during your lifetime or at your death are tax deductible. Donors considering a bequest should consult with their attorney or tax advisor.
