Donations also serve to fund advancements in research providing increased understanding of the disease eventually leading to new treatments and prevention. Thank you for considering the Association as the recipient of your gift.

The Alzheimer’s Association is a tax-deductible organization with a 501(c)(3) designation and is accredited by the BBB (Better Business Bureau).

Become a Sponsor

Many of our events and programs offer the opportunity to for financial and in-kind sponsorship. If you or your company are interested in being a Sponsor, contact Laura Wall at lwall@alz.org or 385.831.7123.

Give through Your Workplace

Employee giving programs make it easy for individuals to contribute to the work of the Alzheimer's Association by designating a specific amount to be deducted from their paychecks.

Many employers sponsor matching gift programs and will match charitable contributions made by their employees. With matching gifts you can sometimes double or even triple your gift! Some companies also match gifts made by retirees and/or spouses. Check with your company to see if they have a matching gift policy. If you do not have a program in place, we can help design a convenient plan. If you have an existing employee giving program, please consider the Alzheimer's Association as your designated charity. For more information please contact Laura Wall at 385.831.7123 or lwall@alz.org.

Another way to give through your workplace is to create a Walk fundraising team. This is a fun way for you and your colleagues to help raise money for the Association. To register, visit: www.alz.org/walk. For more information, please contact Laura Wall at lwall@alz.org or Spencer Hoffman at srhoffman@alz.org

Estate Planning

An estate plan consists of documents that direct those who survive you to distribute your assets according to your wishes. Estate planning documents include wills, living trusts, advanced directives and life insurance policies, , to name a few. A carefully drafted estate plan will make certain that your asset distribution to heirs is thoughtfully prepared, and charitable wishes are fulfilled while minimizing the tax consequences to your family. Estate and financial planning becomes especially important to families managing Alzheimer’s disease. We have a number of resources available online that can help you navigate the unique challenges of estate planning by clicking here.

A planned gift is a gift made through your estate and/or financial plan. There are a number of creative ways to structure a gift that has benefits to you and potentially, your children or heirs. If you have questions or would like to include the Alzheimer’s Association in your estate planning or have questions about gift planning, please contact Lora Adams at ladams@alz.org.

Bequests through Wills and Trusts

Make your gift a lasting legacy by including a bequest to the Alzheimer’s Association of Utah in your will.

For any bequest, you will need the legal name and tax i.d. of the Alzheimer’s Association. Our legal name is: the Alzheimer’s Disease and Related Disorders Association, Inc., Utah Chapter. Our tax i.d. number is: 13-3039601. Our address is: 855 East 4800 South, Suite 100, SLC, UT 84107.

The official bequest language for Alzheimer’s Association is: "I, [name], of [city, state, ZIP], give, devise and bequeath to the Alzheimer’s Association of Utah[written amount or percentage of the estate or description of property] for its unrestricted use and purpose."
For additional information on bequests types and how you would like the Association to use your gift please pick from one of these four options listed below:

A specific bequest gives us a particular piece of property. If you disposed of the property before your death, we won't receive your intended gift because we cannot claim any other property.
A general bequest gives us a stated sum of money. If there is insufficient cash in your estate to cover the bequest, other assets will be sold for cash to honor your wishes for us.

A residuary bequest gives the "rest, residue and remainder" of your estate, or, more commonly, a percentage of the residue after all other bequests, debts and taxes have been paid.
A contingent bequest requires a certain event to occur before the gift can happen. For example, you could bequeath funds to a family member provided that person survives you; if not, the funds would then go to the Alzheimer’s Association.

Did you know? You can make your bequest in honor or in memory of someone special. Please contact us 801.265.1944 to let us know when you have made plans for such a gift. We would appreciate the opportunity to thank you for your generosity. We are committed to honoring your wishes regarding anonymity and maintaining communication.
