Green America: Growing the Green Economy for People and the Planet

What Will Your Legacy Be?

You can help grow Green America’s work for generations to come.

Planned giving, either through one’s will or a financial instrument, is a way to ensure that our work together for a more just and sustainable society continues into the future.

  1. Include Green America in your will.
    In your will, you may leave a specific amount or designate a certain percentage of your assets. You can also indicate assets of a particular type or reserve a portion of your estate that remains after taxes and expenses are paid. Green America can provide you with suggested language for your will.
  2. Designate Green America as a beneficiary in your life insurance policy, IRA, or retirement.
    Your life insurance, IRA, 401(k), or 403(b) plans also allow you to name multiple beneficiaries. You can designate Green America as one of your beneficiaries.
  3. Make a stock gift.
    Green America accepts gifts of stock as a charitable contribution. Giving gifts of stock can save you capital gains tax and result in a charitable deduction on your tax return.
