11 Macula Vision Research Foundation Spring/Summer 2017 Our We Will program was created to enable individuals to include MVRF in their estate planning. You can choose to make a gift to MVRF that would provide you with life income or, make a bequest. As with any gift to MVRF, 100% of your planned gift goes directly to fund the research. MVRF encourages the following planned giving opportunities: • Life income gifts – Charitable Gift Annuities, Charitable Remainder Annuity Trusts, Charitable Remainder Unitrusts and Charitable Lead Trusts1 . • gifts of Life insurance – A donor can designate MVRF as the beneficiary of an existing life insurance policy. • Bequests – provisions in your will to MVRF. The ultimate gift. more people have named mvrf in their will than ever before! Please consider naming us in your will and joining this special MVRF community whose altruism and financial astuteness will help us to save sight for millions of people for future generations to come! We encourage you to consult an attorney for estate planning purposes or an accounting professional for advice on what may work best for you in order to accomplish your personal financial and charitable goals.
