I’ve witnessed the extraordinary difference Gilda’s Club has made in the lives of people dealing with cancer. A planned gift, which can come in different shapes and sizes, will help this incredible organization continue to thrive and innovate for future generations to come.

— Denise Alper, Will Power Society Co-Chair

A planned gift is a way to ensure your philanthropy and memory live on for years to come. We’ve come together to start the Gilda’s Club Will Power Society to create a lasting legacy that provides free cancer support in Middle Tennessee, and I hope you will consider joining us.

— Harriet Karro, Will Power Society Co-Chair

Our Will Power Society Assures Your Gift Will Endure

Our Will Power Society honors those whose deep commitment to Gilda’s Club Middle Tennessee has inspired them to include our cancer support program in their estate planning. In other words, they name our organization as a beneficiary in their wills and bequests. Such avenues of generosity include:

  • Charitable bequests
  • Life-income gifts through charitable remainder trusts or charitable gift annuities
  • Retirement plans or IRA beneficiary designations
  • Life insurance gifts
  • Gifts of stock or real estate
  • Charitable lead trusts.

Whether you want to put your donation to work today or benefit Gilda’s Club after your lifetime, we can help you find a charitable plan that aligns with your philanthropic priorities.

How leaving a planned gift benefits you:

  • Creates a permanent legacy
  • Saves on taxes
  • Supports what you believe in in an enduring way

We encourage you to consult your financial planner or attorney to help guide your planned giving decisions, and then consider including a donation to Gilda’s Club Middle Tennessee in your will or estate planning.
