What is the Legacy Challenge?
When you name the ACLU to receive a gift through your estate, you play a vital role in sustaining the work of the ACLU far into the future.
Right now, through the Legacy Challenge, by naming the ACLU to receive a bequest through your will or living trust or by including the ACLU as beneficiary of your retirement plan, savings account or life insurance policy, the ACLU will receive up to a $10,000 cash match from our generous challenge donor the LuEsther T. Mertz Charitable Trust, while matching funds are available.
This means that your gift for the future will truly have dual impact. You will help ensure that the ACLU has the resources necessary to defend freedom for generations to come. And, at the same time, the cash match triggered by notification of your gift plans will provide immediate support to help us as we stand up against current assaults on liberty.
Here is how it works.
- Name the ACLU in your will or trust or as a beneficiary of a retirement plan, saving account, or life insurance policy. Or, establish a life income gift with the ACLU.
- Tell us about it using our secure on-line Confidential Bequest Intention Form.
- A cash donation up to $10,000 (10% of your future gift's value) will be made by the LuEsther T. Mertz Charitable Trust, while matching funds are available.
