“Being deeply loved by someone gives you strength,

                                                     while loving someone deeply gives you courage.”

Planned Giving

Making a planned gift to the National Vitiligo Foundation is a special way to support our mission -- to find the causes of and cure for vitiligo and provide support and services to all people affected by vitiligo. A planned gift allows you to donate assets, yet defer the time we actually receive them.

The best gift plans improve your financial and tax situation, often right away. We understand that your own financial needs and those of your family come first. We encourage you to explore the possibilities and opportunities for creative gift planning.

Wills & Bequests
You can support the NVFI mission beyond your lifetime by including a bequest to the NVFI in your will. A bequest to the National Vitiligo Foundation is fully deductible for estate tax purposes. You may bequest cash, property or appreciated securities. You need an attorney to help you draw up a will that will meet legal requirements. Ask your attorney, accountant or tax advisor about ways to reduce or eliminate estate taxes.

If you plan to make a restricted gift for a specific purpose, please contact us to make certain the organization can meet the conditions you specify. Call 513-793-NVFI (6834), or emailing

Charitable Trusts
Donors can increase the return on their investment while maintaining control over their assets by establishing a charitable remainder trust. There are two types of charitable remainder trusts, an annuity trust which pays a fixed amount each year, and a unitrust which pays a fixed percentage of the trust's assets as re-valued each year.

You receive an income tax deduction in the year you create the trust based on tables established by the U.S Treasury Department. The charitable remainder trust pays no gain on the sale of the donated securities. However, a portion of the income from the trust may be taxed as capital gains.

For additional information, contact NVFI by calling 513-793-NVFI (6834), or by emailing
