Bequest Money and Stocks

It's incredible to think that 55% of American adults do not have a will or legal plan in place.  This means, that unless addressed, state governments will determine how their assets will be distributed when they pass away.  Please be certain your will reflects your commitment to neurological research by including a gift of any size to AFRFND.

You can leave a legacy of helping others by simply including a clause in your will that might read:

"I give and bequeath to The Annette Funicello Research Fund for Neurological Diseases, at the California Community Foundation:

  • a cash bequest of $__________
  • a percentage of my estate
  • all the rest and remainder of my estate

for the use and purposes of said organization.

If you have any questions or would like to consider a gift of complex assets such as stock or real estate, please contact a Donor Relations representative at the California Community Foundation: (213)239-2300 / [email protected].

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.
