Leave a Legacy

A Legacy is more than the financial inheritance that you leave for the important people in your life. It’s about the essence of who you are that extends into the future- the good that you leave behind. It’s your gift to the world! 

Whether you or your client would like to put your gift to work today or benefit us after your lifetime, you can find a charitable plan that lets you provide for your family and support The Mast Cell Disease Society, Inc.

As a professional advisor, you value professionalism, integrity and honesty, taking the utmost care when serving your clients. As a nonprofit organization, TMS shares your values and takes the same care when it comes to helping our donors plan a legacy.
