Do you want to help the Technion's brilliant researchers?

Why not include the ATS in your will? This involves relatively simple procedures like having your lawyer add a codicil to your will, or naming the ATS as the beneficiary of your IRA or insurance policy. It allows you to continue your giving beyond your lifetime, often at a tax cost of 30-50 cents on the dollar. In addition you will gain satisfaction from a lasting legacy that will help ensure that Technion research benefits people all over the world.
