Charitable gift annuities are steady income you can count on for the rest of your life. Everyone should give back a little of what they've been given.

It's important to acknowledge how blessed we are to have talented doctors who can turn your life around and make miracles happen, but those miracles are the result of many!

I'd like for The American Heart Association to facilitate a program that educates young scholars on healthy lifestyles. If they get it when they're young, it will live with them for a lifetime.

Giving back is important to us. We are of two countries - Estonia and the United States. America has been our home for more than half a century. We are grateful for our life here and want to help others.

Eugene Calman


My main reason for giving is to support the association's research Eugene says. I want to help other people that suffer from heart disease.
