Thanks to our dedicated supporters, EJUSA is recognized as an organization that small, local groups seeking justice can turn to for help and assistance. Since 1990, we have been giving free campaign support, training, and strategic assistance to local groups across the country working to end the death penalty, promote healing from trauma, increase services for crime survivors, reduce violence in their communities, and more.
This month, we are making a special request: to help us build a legacy gift program to ensure we can continue to provide these services in the future. We invite you to join us by considering EJUSA in your estate plans.
Making a bequest is a simple way to provide essential support for EJUSA’s future. With very basic language in your will, or by naming EJUSA as a beneficiary of your retirement plan, life insurance policy, or bank account, you can leave a lasting legacy of healing and justice. Bequests of any size make a difference and demonstrate a commitment to the mission and values EJUSA strives to uphold.
The impact of legacy giving is big, but the process is simple. When you are ready to create or amend your will or trust, simply share this information with your attorney. The same information is needed to name EJUSA as a beneficiary of your retirement plan or life insurance.
Equal Justice USA, 81 Prospect Street, Brooklyn, NY, 11201; Nonprofit Tax ID: 26-1316408.
Planned gifts offer significant tax advantages. If your estate is subject to estate tax, your gift may be entitled to a charitable deduction for the full amount of the bequest. If you make a gift to EJUSA from your retirement plan, there could be substantial income tax savings as well. Of course, you are encouraged to seek the advice of your tax advisor before making any bequest.
Please contact us if you have any questions about how to make a bequest to EJUSA or to request any additional information that might be helpful to you and your attorney as you consider making a bequest to us.
If you have already included a bequest for EJUSA in your estate plan, please contact us to let us know. We would like to thank you and recognize you for your gift.
Our supporters have helped build EJUSA’s mission and every year together we literally help save and heal lives. Please consider a legacy gift today so our impact together can continue in the future.
