Planned Giving

Leaving Your Legacy

You have the power to advance genomic research that can lead to life-changing and lifesaving discoveries. You can also strengthen educational outreach programs that inspire the next generation of scientists, while helping to deliver translational genomics to those who need it most.

The material things you’ve worked for–personal property, retirements funds and insurance policies are tolls that allow you to support causes you care about and leave a meaningful legacy. When it comes to planned giving, even a modest-sized gift has the power to touch many.

“Contributing to organizations like HudsonAlpha supports not only your family, it provides much needed assistance to many other families as well,” said Chris Hinson, Estate and Trust Attorney/Hinson & Hinson, P.C. “Charitable planning is a wonderful and satisfying way to leave a legacy that supports many individuals and families far beyond your immediate family, allowing you to leave a positive legacy for our community.”

With a planned gift, you can:

  • Make a larger charitable gift than you thought possible
  • Take care of the financial needs of your family first 
  • Lower/reduce estate taxes for your heirs
  • Reduce your income tax and even avoid capital gains taxes
  • Diversify your investment portfolio 
  • Leave a legacy without giving up assets

It’s easy to designate the HudsonAlpha Foundation as a recipient of your planned gift. Simply call 256-327-9434 to speak with Jeff Moore, Director of Annual and Planned Giving. You may also email him at:
