Bequests: The Simple Way to Make a Lasting Difference


Remembering the Lymphoma Research Foundation (LRF) with a bequest in your will is the simplest way for you to ensure your lasting legacy and commitment to LRF’s vital mission to eradicate lymphoma and serve those touched by this disease.  By supporting LRF in this way, you retain control of your assets and your estate may save on estate taxes later on.

You may specify a dollar amount, a percentage of your estate, or whatever is left over after designated distributions have been made to your loved ones. Due to the unpredictable nature of future medical advances, it is recommended your bequest be for unrestricted purposes or be directed generally to funding research.  Click here for some examples of bequest language that can be used in a will, codicil or trust, which you can share with your legal counsel.

If you have any questions about including the Lymphoma Research Foundation in your will or would like to request LRF's Bequests: The Simple Way to Make a Lasting Difference brochure, please contact Sam Rogers, Senior Manager of Development, at (212) 349-9009 or
