Legacy & Planned Giving

Planned Giving encompasses philanthropic gifts with one’s long-term financial planning goals. The result is a mutually beneficial relationship between the donor and The SUDC Foundation, please consider a lasting gift by remembering The SUDC Foundation in your estate plans.  

A planned gift to The SUDC Foundation ensures crucial research toward finding the cause and ultimate prevention of SUDC will continue until the day we find an answer.  A lasting gift to the foundation also ensures that families affected by the sudden and unexpected death of a child continue to be empowered by receiving various options for healing through no cost support services.
