It is my joy to support an organization that has done so much for mental wellness by including DBSA in my estate plans. I encourage all who share my love of the mission and work of DBSA to strengthen and support the organization today, tomorrow, and beyond by making a planned gift.
—Christy Beckmann, DBSA Legacy of Wellness Society Member and DBSA Past Board Chair

Build your legacy… and make a difference for millions.

Your planned gift has the power to provide:

  • Understanding in times of confusion and fear.
  • Support instead of isolation and despair.
  • Empowerment in our lives and our treatment.
  • Voices advocating for the rights of ourselves and our children.
  • Belief that wellness is possible.
  • Hope for a future where everyone can thrive.

A deferred gift can help you balance your charitable interests and your financial goals―as well as offer significant tax benefits. A planned gift, such as a bequest in your will or trust, life insurance designations, or stock donation ensures your support for DBSA well into the future. You'll do more than help provide support, you'll create a legacy that will impact the lives of the millions of people who rely on DBSA for life-saving resources for years to come.
