Extending the Mission of NEHA to Future Generations

Founded in 1957, the New England Hemophilia Association (NEHA) is a non-profit organization dedicated to empowering individuals with bleeding disorders and their families through education, support and advocacy. In 2020, NEHA received an anonymous $98,000 donation from Donald F. Allen of Massachusetts, in honor of his son who had hemophilia and passed away during the HIV/AIDS crisis of the 1980’s.

This incredible and unexpected gift at the height of the COVID-19 pandemic provided NEHA with the financial security and resources to continue to achieve its work on behalf of the New England bleeding disorders community. What an extraordinary legacy to leave.

Introducing the NEHA Legacy Society

Inspired by Mr. Allen’s gift, NEHA established the Legacy Society to recognize donors who seek to extend the promise of the New England Hemophilia Association’s mission to the next generation of bleeding disorder families.

Legacy Society members are individuals who have made a provision in their estate planning that will benefit NEHA and ensure a strong community for future generations. These planned gifts, large or small, may take many different forms such as bequests, trusts, life insurance, and IRA beneficiary designations. A planned gift allows you to make charitable gifts, continue to meet your current income needs, and take advantage of current tax incentives.

In making this decision, NEHA Legacy Society members leave a legacy that will improve the lives of people with bleeding disorders and their families throughout New England for years to come. Legacy Society members share a desire to perpetuate their love for our Wicked Strong Family and contribute to NEHA’s future.

We will happily recognize Legacy Society members yearly in our newsletter and on our website, in addition to being recognized at our biennial NEHA Legacy Society event. Legacy Society members may also choose to remain anonymous.
