Giving Through Your Will

A simple and convenient way for you to ensure your ongoing investment in our work is to make the Institute for Humane Studies a beneficiary in your will.

I give ______________ to the Institute for Humane Studies.”

You can insert a specific amount of cash or other assets (such as shares of a stock), a fixed percentage of your estate, or the residue of the estate after other bequests.

Your bequest can be unrestricted, enabling IHS to determine the best uses for your gift at the time funds are received, or you can restrict your support for a specific IHS program.

If you already have a will, you can accomplish a bequest by adding IHS as a beneficiary with an amendment to the will.

Your accountant or attorney can help you determine whether the estate-tax charitable deduction will be of use in your situation.
