Double Helix Society

You have the power to advance genomic research that can lead to life-changing and lifesaving discoveries. Planned gifts are more important than ever to ensure HudsonAlpha's long-term success and vitality. They could also provide significant tax benefits – even income – to you and your family.

Donors who support HudsonAlpha through estate planning are members of the HudsonAlpha Foundation's Double Helix Society. This committed group of supporters enjoy benefits such as recognition in the annual report, name on the Double Helix Society donor wall and an invitation to the annual society luncheon.

To designate the HudsonAlpha Foundation as a recipient of your planned gift, simply call 256-327-9434 or email to speak with Jeff Moore. Click here to download our planned giving brochure.

"Contributing to organizations like HudsonAlpha supports not only your family, it provides much needed assistance to many other families as well," said Chris Hinson, Estate and Trust Attorney/Hinson & Hinson, P.C. "Charitable planning is a wonderful and satisfying way to leave a legacy that supports many individuals and families far beyond your immediate family, allowing you to leave a positive legacy for our community."

Membership benefits include:

  • Name on Double Helix Society wall
  • Annual Double Helix Society luncheon
  • Naming opportunities available for irrevocable gifts

The Double Helix Society was formed in 2015 to recognize those donors who include HudsonAlpha in their estate or long-term gift planning. These supporters are in many ways the foundation of HudsonAlpha's future.
