Giving Through Your Will

Remembering The Dubin Center in your will helps support our mission to provide information, education and support to people who have been diagnosed with Alzheimer’s disease and related dementias and their family caregivers.


A charitable gift from your estate is a favored method of giving that enables you to achieve your financial goals and benefit The Dubin Center in ways that may not be possible through lifetime gifts.


Giving through your estate plan can generate a charitable estate tax deduction and substantial tax savings. You may direct all or a portion of your estate to The Dubin Center.

Most donors leave their gifts to The Dubin Center without restriction. This allows The Dubin Center to use these funds to help us fulfill our mission. The Dubin Center honors a donor’s stated intent for the use of a gift. Donors, who wish to designate the use of any gift, whether made during their life or through their estate, will have that wish honored.


There are numerous planned giving vehicles available other than wills. We suggest you speak with your attorney or financial planner. We would be happy to offer local professionals to assist if you do not already have someone in place.
