Legacy Giving

Help the alopecia areata community now and for years to come

Name NAAF in Your Will

Through your will or trust, you may leave a gift to be directed to NAAF. You may choose to leave the gift unrestricted to be used where NAAF needs most, or you may restrict it to be used to fund specific programs . These gifts, commonly called bequests, are deductible from your gross estate and can offer tax estate savings and have no maximum amount.

Please contact NAAF if you are considering a bequest so that we may offer assistance in the planning process. Call 415.472.3780 or email

If you have already named NAAF as a beneficiary in your will or trust, please let us know so that we may celebrate and recognize you for your generosity now.

Creative Ways to Leverage Your Assets to Support NAAF

NAAF staff are available to support you in the planning and execution of creative asset gifts. Call 415.472.3780 or email  so we may make the process as easy as possible for you.

Life Insurance

Designate NAAF to receive all or a designated portion of your life insurance policy proceeds.  To do so, update your beneficiary designation through your insurance company (often easily done online). Alternatively, you may also transfer ownership of a paid-up life insurance policy to NAAF now. Those supporting NAAF in this way may receive an income tax deduction for the donation of a paid-up life insurance policy and estate tax savings after your passing.

Real Estate

You may deed a property that you own to NAAF and in exchange, you receive an income tax deduction for the fair market value of the real estate, with no capital gains tax paid on your part.

Retirement Plans

Support NAAF by naming the organization as a beneficiary of your IRA, 401(k), or other retirement plan. You still have the flexibility to change beneficiaries if your family’s needs change during your lifetime, and your family avoids the potential double taxation on the assets left in retirement accounts.

Plan administrators may not notify NAAF, so please be sure to alert NAAF staff if you’ve made this generous designation.
