Legacy Giving

Oak tree


What do you want your legacy to be? If it includes a cure for HIV/AIDS, please consider a gift to AIDS Research Alliance when planning the final distribution of your assets.



“I support AIDS Research Alliance because I have lost friends and lovers to HIV/AIDS… One of my close friends, Paul, died of a heart attack, which I have to assume was related to his HIV-positive status. A cure would solve all of that. I want to help prostratin obtain FDA approval.”

Michael Becker, ARA Legacy Circle member



Legacy giving provides stability and continuity to AIDS Research Alliance and its cure research.

Legacy Circle

The Legacy Circle is a special community of donors nationwide that have named AIDS Research Alliance in their estate plans. Legacy Circle donors want to ensure that we continue the search for a cure for AIDS until we find one. 

Federal and state laws can offer significant tax advantages when you leave a planned gift to AIDS Research Alliance.  With careful planning, your estate can provide for your family and loved ones, minimize their future tax burdens, and ensure the future of our search for a cure.

Please contact Lilian Miller, our Director of Development, at 310-360-3863 for more about the Legacy Circle.

Legal Designation

The appropriate designation for wills, trusts, insurance policies, stock transfers, and life income arrangements is:

AIDS Research Alliance of America, a non-profit research corporation (ID 95-4264845), organized and existing under the laws of the State of California.

Of course, when considering all planned giving options, it is important to have the assistance of legal counsel and financial advisors who can assess your estate planning objectives and identify the estate planning vehicles that would be most advantageous for you.  AIDS Research Alliance can recommend experts who can help you.  Please contact our Director of Development at 310-360-3863 or development@aidsresearch.org for more information.
