Please consider supporting people with myositis and their loved ones as part of your long-term legacy. Planned and legacy gifts allow TMA to secure our future by expanding programs, extending our reach, and more effectively helping the myositis community.

Thank you for your interest and support. The gifts you plan today will create a strong foundation for TMA tomorrow and far into the future.

Planned Giving Options

Planned giving allows you and your loved ones to benefit at the same time you support TMA. Please discuss the following options (and other innovative gifts!) with your financial advisor to find the best option for you and your loved ones. Please consider:

  • Including a gift from your will or trust (a specific amount or a percentage of the estate).
  • Using appreciated stock or property instead of cash to make your gift.
  • Naming TMA as the beneficiary of your retirement plan to maximize tax savings for your family.
  • Designating TMA through a charitable gift annuity, charitable remainder annuity trust, or charitable remainder unitrust.
  • Establishing a deferred gift annuity.
  • Creating a new life insurance policy, or donate a paid-up policy of coverage you no longer need.
  • Creating a charitable lead trust to pay income to TMA for a fixed time and then pay the remainder to your heirs.
  • Make a gift from your donor-advised fund or name TMA as the ultimate beneficiary of the remainder in the fund.
  • Making other innovative gifts based on your financial advisor’s recommendation.

We would love to talk with you confidentially about giving opportunities to support our work. We can also share more information with you about planned gifts and how they can meet your personal, financial, and philanthropic goals.
