Planning for the future and creating the legacy you wish to leave is one of the most effective ways to ensure a lasting impact. Making a gift in your will or living trust, known as a bequest, can guarantee that your legacy endures. Your gift may be a specific dollar amount, a percentage of your estate or the remainder after all other provisions are specified.

Sample Language

For an unrestricted gift that allows MPN Research Foundation to determine how to use the funds based on the most pressing needs, use the following language for your will and/or trust:

"I give, devise, and bequeath to MPN Research Foundation, a nonprofit corporation in Chicago, Illinois, _________ [written amount or percentage of the estate or description of property] of the rest, residue, and remainder of my estate as an unrestricted gift to be used at the discretion of the Board of Directors of MPN Research Foundation to help develop better treatments and a cure for MPN blood cancers."

If you have named MPN Research Foundation in your will or trust, please let us know so we can ensure that your gift is used according to your wishes. Notifying us of your plans will enable us to plan for the use of your future gift. However, if you prefer to remain anonymous, we will keep your name and gift in strict confidence.

Please contact the Development Office at (312) 683-7249 or for more information.
