Bequests and Estate Gifts

Bequests and estate gifts may enable you to achieve your financial goals while supporting Americans for Prosperity. Large or small, your bequest will make an impact and help preserve the American Dream for future generations. We suggest you consult your estate advisor about potential financial benefits.

There are several ways you can include Americans for Prosperity in your estate plans. You can gift:

  1. A fixed amount of your estate
    Example: $25,000
  2. A percentage of your estate
    Example: A residuary bequest of 25% of the remainder of your estate once other bequests, debts, and taxes have been paid
  3. An asset in your estate
    Example: Your home or 1,000 shares of ABC Corporation stock
  4. A conditional or contingent gift from your estate
    Example: You will give $25,000 provided (1) we still offer a particular program or service and (2) your spouse does not survive you

Bequest Language

It is important that your bequest is accurately and clearly described in your estate plan so that we can carry out your wishes as intended.

If you are interested in including Americans for Prosperity in your estate, please be sure to include our full legal name and our federal tax identification number in your bequest (see language below).

“Americans for Prosperity, a District of Columbia nonprofit corporation, or its successor, Federal Tax Identification Number: 75-3148958.”

This language can be modified to fit the structure of your estate gift.

Example for a specific bequest: “I give $25,000 [or another amount, property, or other asset] to Americans for Prosperity, a District of Columbia nonprofit corporation, or its successor, Federal Tax Identification Number 75-3148958.”

Example for a residuary bequest: “I give to Americans for Prosperity, a District of Columbia nonprofit corporation, or its successor, Federal Tax Identification Number 75-3148958, all [or a portion] of the rest, residue, and remainder of my estate.”

Beneficiary Designations
