Make the fight against aplastic anemia, MDS, and PNH part of your legacy. Help future generations of patients and families who will look to the Aplastic Anemia & MDS International Foundation in the years ahead for patient education and support, research, and awareness, just as you and your family have.
- If you have a will, read over it to be sure that it is current and reflects any recent changes in your family or your charitable interests.
- If you don’t have a will, be sure you get one. It’s important to have a will so you can state who you want to give your assets to – family, friends, and causes you care about. Otherwise, the state can give away your money for you. You earned, saved, and invested it during your lifetime, so you should say who benefits from your hard work.
Guardians of Hope Society recognizes those patients, family members and friends who have either named AA&MDSIF as a beneficiary of their estate, or who have made a planned gift through stocks, securities, life insurance or trust to help in the fight against aplastic anemia, MDS and PNH. Such gifts provide an enduring legacy of your personal interest and commitment to providing education, service and research for those facing bone marrow failure diseases.
Making an estate or planned gift simply means you are planning a charitable gift today that will be rewarding. Learn more by reading the Guardians of Hope brochure about giving gifts through a bequest, stocks, securities, life insurance or a trust that can provide you with income.

Need wording to insert into your will/estate plan?
After you've taken care of your family and friends, consider including AA&MDSIF as a charitable recipient of either a designated amount (like $10,000 or $25,000) or a percentage of your estate (like 10%, 20%, etc). Also consider including AA&MDSIF as a residuary beneficiary to which any undesignated dollars in your estate might be given after all your specific bequests have been given.
Ask your attorney to include this paragraph, specified to your gift preferences, in your will:
I give, devise, and bequeath $________(amount) or _____% (percentage) to the Aplastic Anemia & MDS International Foundation (AA&MDSIF), 100 Park Avenue, Suite 108, Rockville, MD, 20850, a not-for-profit corporation for its charitable uses as directed by its Board of Directors. [optional language – This gift is made in memory/honor of PERSON's NAME.]
