Discover the Benefits of Giving Wisely

Planned gifts provide the resources that create extraordinary opportunities and preserve our future.

The programs of the American Heart Association depend upon your goodwill. To that end, there are a myriad of easy giving options from which you can choose – from naming us as a beneficiary in your will to a more complex trust arrangement.

We’ve created this easy-to-understand website to help you find the gift that's right for you. Here you can learn how to plan a gift to American Heart Association. We'll tell you about creative giving strategies that enhance you and your family's well being, and that also help us as well.


This website is interactive and fun to use:

  • If you are already considering certain giving options, simply click on Compare Gift Options and select the gifts you want to learn more about.

  • If you are not sure how our gift plans can meet your financial goals, enter the Legacy Planner™, and follow the trail to the gifts that will work best for you. Each option you select leads to more choices, letting you design your own gift plan.

  • Request a personalized gift illustration from us that details your plan and refer to the FAQ's and Glossary sections.

Welcome! We hope you enjoy the site.
