… that researchers could come to us seeking grants that would promote integration of theory, clinical practice and research findings, thus promoting improvement in care of the dying and the bereaved.
You can make these dreams come true with a planned gift to ADEC!
As a founding member of ADEC, I have always considered it my professional home. I am making a bequest in my will to ensure that the special blend of research, practice and friendly mentoring which is ADEC continues well into the future.” Judith Stillion, PhD, CT
A planned gift is any major gift, made in lifetime or at death as part of a donor’s overall financial and/or estate planning.
Planned giving allows you to keep your values alive and active through the workings of the association after you’re gone. It allows you to make a substantial donation to ADEC now without depleting your day-to-day income or retirement assets. Plus, you can potentially enjoy substantial tax advantages and add flexibility to your financial planning.
Your planned gift will ensure ADEC’s future, as well as help support research, professional education and the development of resources to help prepare the next generation of thanatologists.
Your donation will help ADEC grow stronger in the future.
There are a number of ways in which you can make a gift to ADEC.
Percentage — This method provides the most flexibility, since the gift fluctuates according to the size of the estate.

"ADEC is in my will because it was critical to my professional development and growth, as well as the careers of some of my students. I also want to help fund the vital work ADEC does to support and educate professionals and through them, to aid people coping with dying and bereavement." Gordon Thornton, PhD, FT
