Legacies are vital to every charity. They provide the bedrock financial support we rely upon to look ahead and progress effectively. At present almost 7 out of 10 people in the US support a charity, but fewer than 1 in 20 remember a charity in their will.*
Supporting diabetes research
Giving through your will enables you to support diabetes research whilst ensuring that you and your dependants are provided for. We hope that, with our help, more people will consider leaving a legacy to diabetes research and leaving their mark on the world.
How do I leave a legacy to DRWF?
Remembering a charity in your will can be a very easy and tax efficient way of supporting a cause that has been dear to your heart. It is always worth seeking professional help from a solicitor when you are drafting your will to aviod any potential problems arising for your family. If you decide that diabetes research is a cause you would like to support through your will, all you need to do is tell your solicitor and provide the charity’s details, which are:
Federal Tax Identification: 52-1840230
Diabetes Research & Wellness Foundation®
5151 Wisconsin Avenue, NW
Washington, DC 20016
Your solicitor will explain the different types of legacy that you can leave and can advise you which best suits your wishes and the needs of your family.
If you do decide to remember DRWF in your will, please let us know so that we can thank you.
