Planned Giving

Your legacy can fund melanoma research.

 

Leaving a gift to AIM as part of your estate is a wonderful way to support our work.

No matter who you are, how old you are, or how healthy you are, having an up-to-date will is an essential way to protect your family and support charitable causes that are important to you. If you are one of the 67% of Americans who does not have an estate plan, you can use this free tool from our partners at FreeWill to guide you through each step of writing your will (or Revocable Living Trust if you live in California). It takes about 20 minutes. Whether you give to AIM or not, we encourage you to create a will, and this free platform is one very easy way to do it.

Whether you use FreeWill or have a will already in order, please let us know if you’ve included AIM in your plans.

 

 

Naming AIM at Melanoma as a beneficiary of one of your assets is another way to give to AIM upon your passing.

You can name AIM as a beneficiary of one of the following:

  •  life insurance policies
  •  individual retirement accounts (IRA), such as 401(k) and 403(b)
  •  annuities, provided the plan continues after death
  •  checking, savings, or other financial accounts

Contact your insurance company, retirement account holder, financial advisor, or bank to request a beneficiary designation form. You’ll need the following information: AIM at Melanoma, 3040 Cutting Blvd, Richmond CA 94804 |Fed Tax ID: 56-2427805

Kindly let us know of your generosity by contacting Alicia Rowell, AIM’s Vice President.

 

Those who include us in their estate plans—either via will or beneficiary—and let us know about the gift will become members of AIM’s Legacy Guild.
