Planned Giving

Dravet syndrome is a rare disease, and families have few places to turn for continued support year after year. Dravet Syndrome Foundation (DSF) offers hope and support throughout a patient’s lifelong journey with Dravet syndrome. DSF guarantees patients and families have the tools and support they need to assure the best quality of care for their loved one. DSF supports members by funding research for treatments and a cure; through family support and advocacy programs; by hosting educational conferences and workshops; and offering support for bereaved families.

“I wish I could do more” are words we often hear from the thoughtful people who support DSF’s mission. In truth, you can do more for the future of DSF and the future of our community through carefully planned gifts. There are many ways you can leave a legacy and help sustain DSF, while providing significant tax benefits for your family and heirs. In addition to an outright, tax-deductible cash gift, there are other ways you can support our mission:

  • a bequest in your will or living trust
  • a beneficiary designation on a life insurance policy, 401(k) plan or IRA
  • an endowment
  • gifts of stock or other assets
  • life estate gifts or bargain sale gifts

If you choose to name DSF in your will or other estate planning, please include the following information:

Dravet Syndrome Foundation, a nonprofit corporation, organized and existing under the laws of the State of Connecticut and with the address of P.O. Box 3026, Cherry Hill, NJ 08034.  

Tax identification number: 27-0924627

Designation language example: “I give to the Dravet Syndrome Foundation, a tax-exempt corporation, with its principal business office at P.O. Box 3026, Cherry Hill, NJ 08034 (insert written amount of gift, percentage of estate or residuary of estate or description of property) to be used for the mission of the organization.”
