For Trustees and Advisors

In your work as an advisor, you value professionalism, integrity and honesty, taking the utmost care when serving your clients. As a nonprofit organization, we share your values and take the same care when it comes to helping our donors plan charitable gifts.

The American Lung Association is fortunate to have many friends join us in creating a world without lung disease by making us the beneficiary of a gift through bequests, trust agreements, life insurance, retirement accounts or other forms of planned gifts.

The Association’s National Office of Estate and Trust Administration is responsible for stewarding and accounting for planned gifts on behalf of the Lung Association offices across the country.

Partner With Us

Our goal is to provide you with whatever assistance you require as you steward distribution of your client’s gift to our organization. In order for us to provide you with a timely response, please notify us of your client’s thoughtful gift. Please feel confident that your client’s wishes with respect to the gift will always be honored.
