A Gift of Support
The Turner Syndrome Foundation is dedicated to the life and future of all girls that are affected by this complex disorder. As we know there is no certainty on the viability of a fetus with Turner Syndrome and we realize there is a great need for answers. Why did this happen to my baby? Will this happen again in future pregnancies? How could this mutation have been prevented? What will come of my baby's future? There are many unknowns, and we are dedicated to tackling these difficult questions to search for answers and to provide education, information, and support through our programs areas of Awareness, Advocacy, Education, and Research.
Over the past years, we have spent much time and energy engaging with professional organizations delving into a higher level of understanding and information sharing about Turner Syndrome. The foundation holds a rigorous exhibition schedule at major national conferences where information is disseminated and collaborations incited. We have produced a number of education videos and have jointly sponsored the first web based education program for pediatric care providers. We enlist the volunteerism efforts of good people and companies who can help once or help often on one of our committees. A National Council of State Leaders has been formed to arm the United States with a coordinated advocacy effort to raise awareness, increase education opportunities regionally, and support research. We rely on charitable contributions to achieve much of this work, and our tireless energy and your support truly make a difference.
Your support helps us to continue these programs that have proven successful to improve the lives of babies, caregivers, and their community. There is so much more that needs to be accomplished, and we hope that we can count on you for your generous support.
Understanding Donor Advised Funds (DAF)
A donor-advised fund (DAF) is a centralized charitable account. It allows charitably-inclined individual, families and businesses to make tax-deductible charitable donations of cash, publicly-traded stock and in some case, certain illiquid assets, to a public charity that sponsors a DAF program.
A sponsoring organization is a 501(c)(3) public charity that sponsors a DAF program such as Fidelity Charitable Foundation, Greater Kansas City Community Foundation, and Shwab Charitable.
Donor support is the lifeblood to steward the mission of the Turner Syndrome Foundation. Have a meaningful impact on this cause and initiate a grant through a donor advised fund.

Leaving A Legacy: Planning Now for Their Future
Providing for the future of others is admirable and significant. When you designate a gift in your will or estate plan to the Turner Syndrome Foundation, Inc. you are leaving an enduring gift that promises a better future for babies born with Turner Syndrome.
A thoughtful way to ensure that your support continues after you are gone is by taking a few simple steps when preparing your estate plan. You can maximize the amount that will go to charity and minimize the amount paid for taxes while knowing that you have earned thanks of those who will be helped by your caring generosity. A gift in your will, called a bequest, could be the right option for you. Bequests allow you to have an impact on the future without parting with your assets today. And, your generosity will continue long after you are gone.
We provide an opportunity for people of all financial means to contribute in a meaningful way. Depending on your philanthropic priorities and your financial situation, you can talk with your attorney or financial advisor to determine which strategy and type of gift best suit your charitable goals. Give to a cause you care about most while gaining maximum tax benefits under state and federal law. Schedule a time to discuss ways you can maximize your gift.
You have flexibility. A bequest lets you balance your philanthropic goals with your concerns about the future. Because you are not actually parting with assets today, you don't need to worry that you might later need those assets to live on. Plus you can change your mind at any time.
You can be sensible in your commitment. Your gift can be made as a percentage of your estate, allow you to benefit Turner Syndrome Foundation and loved ones in relative proportion.
Contact your lawyer to add a charitable gift in your will. Decide what amount or percentage you want to give. Work with your lawyer to update your existing will with a simple codicil or to begin developing your estate plan. Notify us of your intention so we can thank you for your future gift, recognize you (we will honor your preferences regarding anonymity) and keep you informed of our ongoing activities.
