Gift or Bequest Your Items of Value

It is largely understood among serious collectors that the treasures we acquire,preserve, study and enjoy, we do not really own.  We are but caretakers of them for a short time until they are eventually passed on to a new set of hands that we hope will love, protect and enjoy them at least as much as we have - if not more.

This same perspective applies to items and collections of any size and price value.  Oftentimes, friends and family do not recognize the value we do in such items and we are faced with the dilemma of how they should be handed down and cared for at some point in the future.

The Annette Funicello Research Fund for Neurological Diseases' Ebay and auction house friends and partners may be able to help you find a good home for items of value that you wish to bequest or gift to AFRFND - for the purpose of being sold to exclusively support the grant research projects of the Foundation.  This is a great way to create a philanthropic legacy while ensuring your treasured items will be passed along to someone who will appreciate them.

Examples of items we consider:

  • Antiques
  • Jewelry
  • Hollywood/Celebrity Memorabilia
  • Disneyana

If you have a single item or collection you are interested in gifting or bequesting to The Annette Funicello Research Fund for Neurological Diseases, please contact us today.
The Annette Funicello Research Fund for Neurological Diseases (AFRFND) is dedicated to funding grant research into the cause, treatment and cure of MS and other neurological diseases.
