NETRF Legacy Society

The NETRF Legacy Society is a group of supporters, celebrated by NETRF, who have taken the steps to include the Neuroendocrine Tumor Research Foundation in their estate plans. Gifts of this nature, or planned gifts, are legally arranged during the donor’s lifetime, but are not usually dispersed until a later date.

For donors, a planned gift through a will or living trust is an effective and affordable way to make a major financial contribution and have a lasting impact on NETRF.  Many planned gifts can also have tax advantages.
