Optics Trust

The Optics Trust is a distinguished group of individuals who have included the OSA Foundation in their wills and estate plans.

There are several ways to make a bequest to the Foundation. Consider donating a specific dollar amount or a percentage of your estate. Alternatively, a residual of your estate may be directed to the OSAF. We strongly advise consulting with a professional tax advisor or estate planning expert when planning an estate-related gift.

For more information please contact our staff.
