PHILANTHROPY GIVING HOPE FOR THE FUTURE both the donor and the charity and often achieving significant tax savings. Do you wonder what the future looks like? At Van Andel Institute (VAI) our scientists are working hard to create a future free from cancer and Parkinson’s disease. Planning is one way to create a secure future for you and your loved ones while also leaving a legacy that can help patients and families for generations to come. "I wish I could do more" is the comment we often hear from friends of the Institute. The truth is that a gift in a will or estate plan can have a huge impact at VAI where 100 percent of your gift will go directly toward our mission. Every dollar really does make a big difference. Donors can designate a planned gift to specific areas of our work. Whether it’s a type of cancer that has impacted your family or your passion for inspiring the next generation of scientists in our education programs, donors have the satisfaction of knowing they have played an integral part in impacting human health. Planned giving is a means of making a charitable gift part of a donor's overall financial, estate, tax and philanthropic planning, maximizing the benefits to Donors who support the Institute through a planned gift automatically become members of Van Andel Institute’s Society of Hope. The Society of Hope recognizes individuals who have notified us that they have included VAI in their will or other deferred giving plan. Through our acknowledgment of and gratitude toward these exceptional people, we hope that their generosity will inspire others. Is a planned gift right for you?
