CMTA Legacy Society

By making a gift to the CMTA’s Legacy Society, you are ensuring the CMTA’s work will benefit our children, grandchildren and future generations. Your generosity will make a lasting, positive imprint on the world, providing hope and making tangible change for individuals with CMT for years to come—perhaps even preventing future generations from getting it.

When you join the CMTA Legacy Society, you can make your bequest in a number of ways:

★ Donate a specific dollar amount or asset to the CMTA.
★ Donate a percentage of your estate to the CMTA.
★ Donate to the CMTA from the balance—or residue—of your estate.
★ Designate the CMTA to receive specific assets.

How will your bequest be used?

In the decade since the CMTA’s research efforts were consolidated under the banner of STAR (Strategy to Accelerate Research), the STAR alliance has expanded to more than 25 pharmaceutical, biotech and service partners, and the CMTA has spent more than $15 million to finance scores of research projects, more than 50 of which are currently active. Your bequest will be used to fund this life-changing research.
