Gifts Anyone Can Afford
Did you know there are ways to support The ALS Association Greater New York Chapter that don't affect your current lifestyle or your family's security?
You can support The ALS Association Greater New York Chapter with gifts that don't impact the way you live. You can designate The ALS Association Greater New York Chapter to receive estate assets in the future, or you can make immediate gifts to us of assets that are "out of sight and out of mind." We call these "Gifts Anyone Can Afford" because anyone can make them now without impacting their cash flow, lifestyle or family security.
