What is Legacy Giving?

A legacy gift is a special way to give – either in honor of a loved one who supported and advocated for spinal cord injury research,  or a dedicated gift in your own estate plan that ensures the future of spinal cord injury is positively impacted in the years to come.

There are a few ways to include the cause of spinal cord injury cure research, advocacy, and prevention in your legacy planning.
