A Gift in Your Will or Living Trust

One powerful way to impact the lives of refugees is by making a gift to USA for UNHCR in your will or trust. A gift through your will or trust is a way to ensure we can continue to protect and empower refugees for generations to come.

Here is some sample language you can provide to your legal counsel when preparing your will: I give to the United States Association for UNHCR, located at 1310 L St NW, Suite 450, Washington, DC 20005 a 501c3 non-profit with federal tax ID 52-1662800 ___% of my estate (or the sum of $___) to be used where needed most (or to support___).

We've partnered with FreeWill to help you start the process of writing your will at no cost to you. This tool is meant to support you in thinking about your estate plan when you consult with your legal and financial advisors. You can access the tool at www.FreeWill.com/usaforunhcr

When creating, changing or reviewing your will or trust it is also a good time to review your beneficiary designations as these assets (life insurance, annuities, retirement accounts or other financial institution accounts) are not controlled by your will.

You should consult with your legal and financial advisor when creating, changing or reviewing your will or trust. The information or tools on this website are not intended as legal or tax advice.
