Why You Should Leave a Charitable Bequest to American Heart Association

Your charitable bequest to the American Heart Association can help ensure that the AHA is able to continue their important work in the fields of research and development so they can directly combat deadly heart disease and stroke. Globally, heart disease is the number one killer - and stroke ranks second in deaths around the world. 

The AHA has invested more money than any other private non profit in the world. Only the US Federal Government has put more money towards the cause. The AHA’s groundbreaking research has resulted in medical breakthroughs that save lives every day. The American Heart Association has long been an integral part of forward-thinking research and drug development in this important sector of medicine.

Donations to the American Heart Association have allowed the organization to:

  • Enhance knowledge about lifesaving treatments

  • Fund lifesaving research

  • Earn Nobel Prizes in Chemistry, Physiology or Medicine for groundbreaking research

  • Lead the efforts on tobacco oversight

  • Establish unprecedented research initiative, One Brave Idea, which awarded $75M to curing heart disease

  • Establish AHA Institute, that provides funding to allow researchers to mine, link and leverage staggering amounts of patient-data in effort to make medical advances

  • And so much more…

Include the AHA in your Estate Plan with Planned Gifts you name in your Trust or Will. Your contribution can guarantee the incredible work the AHA does is able to continue.
