Making Your Planned Gift to Gilda’s Club NYC

Gilda’s Club NYC has established the Legacy Society to celebrate and thank those individuals who share our belief that no one should face cancer alone and who believe in our mission to support, educate and empower cancer patients and their families free of charge. Should you choose to include Gilda’s Club NYC in your will or other estate plans or if you have already included us in your estate plans, we would be honored to know of your intentions and have you as a member of our Legacy Society.

Members of the Legacy Society will not only be recognized in our publications and on our web site, but will also receive a Gilda’s Club NYC lapel pin. You will also be invited to attend our annual Donor Appreciation event.

Leaving a gift is easy.
Bequests from a will or trust are the most common way to leave a gift to Gilda’s Club NYC. Some people set aside a certain dollar amount. Others leave a percentage of the estate or assets left over after providing for their family. Others have made Gilda’s Club NYC the beneficiary of 401K/IRA plans or insurance policies, or have established a Charitable Gift Annuity or a Charitable Remainder Trust to Gilda’s Club NYC.

Your gift will be completely confidential.
We will not ask how much is being left to Gilda’s Club NYC. However, we are available to help you plan your gift and make sure we comply with your wishes. If you would like to let us know the name you would choose for your Fund and your plans for its distribution, we will file this information confidentially. Then, you are assured that your plans will be followed exactly as you have outlined them to us. Your instructions to us can be changed at any time with a simple phone call to the Development office.

Joining the Legacy Society requires one simple step.
Kindly submit the Letter of Intent Legacy Society Form informing us of your intentions to include Gilda’s Club NYC in your bequest. Please be sure to indicate if you wish your gift to remain confidential. The agreement is non-binding and does not constitute a legal promise of any future donation to Gilda’s Club NYC.

Please send the completed forms to:
Gilda’s Club NYC
195 West Houston Street
New York, NY 10014
Attn: Development Office

These forms are also available at the Gilda’s Club NYC Development office.

Thank You For Your Support.
Whether you are planning a gift or have already made us a beneficiary, we are so grateful. The Legacy Society is just one of the many ways we would like to recognize you today for future gifts you are planning that will provide significant benefits to Gilda’s Club NYC. It is the generosity of individuals like you that has enabled Gilda’s Club NYC to continue to provide support and education to more cancer patients and their families- free of charge, today and tomorrow!
