More giving options


Honor gifts are a special way to acknowledge important people in your life. These gifts are often given on special occasions, such as a friend's or relative's birthday, graduation or anniversary. They can also be given to celebrate holidays like Christmas, Hanukkah, Mother's Day or Father's Day.

Memorial gifts are a meaningful way to pay respect and express a tribute to someone who has passed on.

Memorial and honor gifts can be made by phone, mail or online. Donors should include the name or names of the recipients of the honor or memorial gift. Donors should also include the name and address of anyone whom they wish to receive an acknowledgement of their donation.

If making an online donation, this information should be provided in the comments box. The gift designation box should be to “Alzheimer's care and research.”

Estate Planning

By naming the C. Rex and Ruth H. Layton Aging and Alzheimer's Disease Center as a beneficiary in your will, your generosity will be a lasting legacy for future generations facing Alzheimer's disease and dementia. The OHSU Foundation and local attorneys can help you with your estate planning and minimize taxes on these gifts.

There are many creative ways to accomplish this generous giving:

Bequests – Gifts by will or revocable living trust may be for a specific dollar amount, a percentage of your total estate or a residual amount remaining after all specific bequests and expenses have been paid.

Beneficiary designations – By naming the Layton Aging and Alzheimer's Disease Center as a beneficiary of retirement plans, life insurance policies, transfer-on-death accounts and commercial annuities, you can control your funds during your life and avoid income and estate taxes on your death.

Life income gifts – This gift allows you to make a significant contribution while protecting or improving your personal financial situation. These gift plans provide income for life, an immediate income tax deduction and the potential for reduced estate taxes. The most common life income gifts are charitable gift annuities and charitable remainder trusts.

Real estate with retained life interest – A gift of a remainder interest in real estate allows you to transfer ownership while retaining the right to live in your residence for the remainder of your life. An income tax deduction is available for a portion of the value of the real estate. It is also possible to convert the retained life interest to a stream of income.

Giving to the Layton Aging and Alzheimer's Disease Center through these or other gift vehicles can give hope to those with Alzheimer's disease and at the same time help you avoid excessive taxes.
