Our Family Tree: Legacy Giving

Join a community of changemakers.

Family Equality’s Family Tree is a community of changemakers who are dedicated to protecting and uplifting LGBTQ+ families for generations to come as part of their lasting legacy. By planning a gift to Family Equality, members of the Family Tree are essential in helping us continue our fight for a world where everyone can experience the unconditional love and belonging of family. 

Joining Family Equality’s Family Tree is one of the most powerful actions you can take to advocate for generations of LGBTQ+ families to come. 

Ways to leave a legacy gift

There are a few ways you can join this impactful community.

  1. A gift in your will or trust: Designate a specific amount or leave a percentage of your estate to Family Equality to ensure the fight for LGBTQ+ families continues on — while also achieving estate tax advantages.

    Sample language: I [name], of [city, state], bequeath the sum of $[X] or [X] percent of my estate to Family Equality, a nonprofit organization with a business address of 475 Park Ave. S, #2100, New York, NY 10016 and a tax identification number of 52-1438455 for its unrestricted use and purpose.
  2. Beneficiary designations: Specify Family Equality as a designated beneficiary of your retirement assets, life insurance policies, and other annuities. You do not need to update your will to make these changes.
