Have an attorney?
If you’d prefer to go your attorney to draft or update your will, you can let him/her know of the following language:
“I bequeath (amount or percentage) to Lawyers For Children, a non-profit corporation existing under the laws of New York, with the principal business address of 110 Lafayette Street, 8th Floor, New York, NY. and federal tax identification number 13-3202043.”
If you have questions about planned giving options, email firstname.lastname@example.org or call 212-966-6420. If you have included LFC in your planned giving already, we’d love to know so we can recognize your contribution.
If you are 70.5 or older, and you have a traditional IRA, there’s a smart way to give to Lawyers for Children. You can make a contribution, also known as a Qualified Charitable Distribution (QCD), from your IRA that is 100% tax free, whether or not you itemize deductions on your tax return.
