By including CURE Epilepsy in your will or other estate planning documents, you can make a substantial difference in the lives of the 65 million people touched by epilepsy worldwide. Each of us has an opportunity—through our generosity—to leave the world a little better than we found it. This is your legacy. And the lives CURE Epilepsy touches can be part of it.
Your gift will not cost you anything during your lifetime or impact your lifestyle. If you are concerned about your heirs, simply provide for your loved ones first and include CURE Epilepsy as a contingent or residual beneficiary.
