Employer matching gift programs give donors and opportunity to double and sometimes even TRIPLE their impact by having their company match their donations. Matching gifts can provide general support or be designated for a specific campaign. Every company is different and may have its own guidelines for matching gifts. Contact your personnel office to find out if your company has a matching gift program.
You can leave behind a legacy of caring that will support, protect, and empower countless Palestinian refugees. With that in mind, we hope you'll consider including a gift to American Friends of UNRWA in your will or living trust. This charitable bequest is simple and flexible:
- Just a few sentences in your will or trust are all that is needed. Consult with your attorney to add the necessary language. The bequest can be in either a dollar or percentage amount.
- Because you are not actually making a gift until after your lifetime, you can change your mind at any time.
- You can also structure the bequest to leave a specific item or make the gift contingent on certain events.
If your estate is subject to estate tax, your gift is entitled to an estate tax charitable deduction for the gift's full value. If you have any questions about leaving American Friends of UNRWA in your living will or trust, feel free to email Abby Smardon or call her at 202-223-3767. We’re here to help.
