What Is the Legacy of Help & Hope Society?

The Muscular Dystrophy Association’s Legacy of Help & Hope Society is an honorary society created to recognize those who have demonstrated their commitment to helping children and adults with neuromuscular diseases through support of MDA’s international research program and nationwide program of medical and community services. Members have extended their commitment into the future by including a provision in their wills, revocable trusts or other planned gifts to benefit MDA.

It’s easy to join the Legacy of Help & Hope Society, and important benefits are extended to members of this prestigious group. Members of the Society are united by a shared mission: the eradication of neuromuscular diseases.

  • Timely updates on research by MDA-supported scientific investigators to help you remain current on the progress in the search for treatments and cures for neuromuscular diseases.
