Leave a Lasting Legacy through the Healthy Futures Society

The CDC Foundation works every day to make the world a healthier and safer place for all people by extending and enhancing the impact of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. We can only do this work, however, because of you, our supporters.

The collective impact of our supporters’ contributions can be life changing to others in need. Today, we are excited to launch the Healthy Futures Society, comprised of individuals who have decided to leave a gift in their will or estate plans to the CDC Foundation.

Recently, my husband and I made the decision to include the CDC Foundation in our estate plan. Now that our children are grown, we wanted to find a way to support our life’s work and our passion for promoting the health and wellbeing of all people. We could think of no better way to do so than through the CDC Foundation, whose positive impact we see firsthand each day.

It brings us great joy to know we will make a difference in others’ lives even after we are gone. If you, too, have a passion for public health, I hope you will consider becoming an inaugural member of the Healthy Futures Society. As we celebrate the CDC Foundation’s 25th anniversary in 2020, we have an ambitious goal to reach 25 members by the end of this year.

Along with the Healthy Futures Society, we have launched a planned giving website, where you can read about the many creative ways to give to the CDC Foundation—options that also benefit you and your loved ones and your financial wellbeing.

For more information about planned giving or the Healthy Futures Society, please contact Amy Macklin, senior advancement officer, at 404-523-1874 or amacklin@cdcfoundation.org.
