Leave a Legacy to the IOCDF

Did you know you can make a bequest in your will/living trust and more as your ultimate charitable gift to support the IOCDF? There is no immediate cost to you, you can change it at any time, and you will be making an incredible lasting impact on the IOCDF’s ability to serve the OCD and related disorder community well into the future.

A will or trust document provides a clear and specific understanding as to how you want to transfer your assets to loved ones and charitable organizations like the IOCDF. Making a bequest in your will or trust document to the IOCDF can have financial benefits for your loved ones, while also supporting our mission.

Sample language below and free resources like this tool from Free Will can help get you started on your legacy plans today. For more complicated estates, a financial advisor can help determine the best options for you.
