ACHA Legacy Circle

Your planned gift is an important way of assuring that your legacy helps improve the lives of people with CHD.

As an adult born with d-TGA along with other complications, I consider myself very fortunate to have discovered ACHA. I became involved with the organization and joined the ACHA Board of Directors. Now I am in a position to contribute to ACHA in another important way, through the planned giving program, which helps ensure that ACHA can continue the effort to reach, educate, and support the vast number of adults living with simple congenital heart defects as well as highly complex ones like mine. — Kevin Gordon, ACHA Board Member

ACHA is appreciative of the generosity and vision of those who choose to include ACHA in their estate plan whether by a bequest in a will or trust, establishing a gift annuity or charitable trust, or by a beneficiary designation on a bank account, life insurance policy or qualified retirement plan (IRA, 401K, etc.). Your planning will ensure that ACHA’s vision that every adult with congenital heart disease receives specialized cardiac care is fulfilled.
