A gift in your will is one of the most powerful ways to help underinsured people get the medication and treatment they need.
No matter your age or wealth, a will is the most popular way to leave your legacy. It’s also the most popular way to make a planned gift to the PAN Foundation. This allows you to:
- Direct your assets to what matters most to you
- Provide life-saving treatment for those who need it most
- Contribute to important work of lowering out of pocket healthcare costs

I have cancer myself. The medication I need to take is very expensive. PAN has helped me with a grant a few times. I left a gift to PAN in my will to help others with chronic diseases to be able to get their medication & other needs.Kathleen Anne Watkins, Connecticut, PAN grant recipient and planned gift donor
Update your existing will
Including the PAN Foundation in your existing will is simple. Just talk to your legal advisor about adding a few sentences. Below are a few examples to help you get started.
Use PAN’s official language below in your will:
“I give, bequeath, and devise (a percentage of my estate, or a dollar amount) to the Patient Access Network Foundation to be used for (general purposes, or fund name).”
If your gift is only for a specific fund or purpose within the PAN Foundation, we encourage you to add a savings clause to your will in the event that the fund or purpose is no longer offered by PAN in the future. This clause allows PAN to direct your gift for a different purpose later, if needed.
Use PAN’s official savings clause language below:
“In the event that such use shall, in the judgment of the President of the Patient Access Network Foundation, become unnecessary or impracticable, I direct that my gift shall be devoted to such purposes as the President, in their sole discretion, shall determine, keeping such use as close to my intent as possible.”
We also invite you to include PAN’s legal information in your will. This will help your executor know exactly where to send your gift.
