How the Legacy Challenge Works

Once you have made a gift in your will or trust, or through beneficiary designation to American Lung Association, or to learn about other ways to make a legacy gift, you are eligible to join the Challenge! Making this type of legacy gift is an easy process that costs you nothing now and makes a lasting difference. Here are two popular ways supporters make legacy gifts to the American Lung Association:

Gifts in a Will

A gift in your will or trust is easy to establish; it can be changed at any time, for any reason and it creates your legacy with the American Lung Association. All you need are a few simple words.

Gifts by Beneficiary Designation

It’s easy to set up a legacy gift through a beneficiary designation in your retirement plan, insurance plan, or other asset. Simply complete a beneficiary designation form from your fund’s administrator. When you do, you take a powerful step towards a world free from lung disease.

When you share details about your gift, you activate an immediate donation from our Board of Directors in your name – $1,000 if you choose to keep your gift amount private. However, if you document your gift today and disclose the gift amount, our Challenge sponsor will make an additional $500 donation in your name. That’s $1,500 in total for a gift with a disclosed amount!
