More Ways To Give
A LEGACY OF ACTION FOR THE FUTURE: You can extend Illinois PIRG Education Fund's tradition of public interest action on behalf of our nation's consumers, and our tradition of research and education, for generations to come.
With Your Help, We'll Keep Up The Fight
We would consider it an honor to be remembered in your will.
Making a charitable bequest is simple and satisfying. In most cases, the addition of a few sentences to your will can complete the gift.
Please consult with your attorney before making any changes to your will.
An IRA or 401(k) can be an efficient way to save for retirement, but is not always the best gift to leave to your heirs. These assets can be a way to include Illinois PIRG Education Fund in your estate plan.
But a retirement asset can make an ideal gift to a tax-exempt charitable organization. Under most circumstances, the full value of a gift will ultimately be transferred to the charity, tax-free; and your estate may receive valuable tax savings.
Naming or changing your beneficiary is simple. After checking with your advisors, ask the administrator of your retirement plan for a beneficiary designation form, fill it out, and return it to the administrator.
In some circumstances, you can name Illinois PIRG Education Fund as the beneficiary of your life insurance policy.
Donating appreciated securities will support our work and, under some circumstances, may provide a meaningful savings on your taxes.
Cy Pres awards have provided funding for some of our most successful pro-consumer efforts, and have enabled us to seize opportunities to launch new initiatives. If you are in a position to direct a Cy Pres award, we would be grateful for the support.
Members of the Public Interest Champions Circle have expressed their commitment to our work on behalf of our nation's consumers, by providing future support to Illinois PIRG Education Fund through a legacy gift.
