Create a legacy gift for Earthjustice
Legacy gifts signify your long-standing commitment to Earthjustice as we defend the planet and all living things. Here are some ways to create a future gift for us and join the Never Rest Legacy Challenge.
Gifts in Your Will or Trust
With a few words, you can include a bequest for Earthjustice in your will or trust. Here is sample language:
“I give to Earthjustice, a nonprofit corporation currently located at 50 California Street, Suite 500, San Francisco, CA 94111, federal tax ID number 94-1730465, or its successor thereto, ______________* for its unrestricted use and purpose.”
*Specific amount, percentage of the estate, or description of property.
Gifts by Beneficiary Designation
Naming Earthjustice as a beneficiary on bank accounts, retirement accounts, DAFs, and other assets takes only minutes and is a powerful way to create your environmental legacy. To take the next step, complete a beneficiary designation form from your fund’s administrator.
To designate Earthjustice as a beneficiary of a qualified retirement plan or other financial account, please use the following information:
Legal name: Earthjustice
Address: 50 California Street, Suite 500, San Francisco, CA 94111
Federal Tax ID number: 94-1730465
Establish a Life Income Gift
Charitable gift annuities and charitable remainder trusts are future gifts that pay you a fixed annual income. When you create a new life income gift of $10,000 or more before December 31, 2022, your initial gift will be matched by an outright donation equal to 10% of its value.
