It is surprisingly easy to make a lasting gift to Friends of FOKAL. You can include Friends of FOKAL as a beneficiary: in your will or living trust or in your life insurance policy.
In Your Will
We strongly advise you to seek legal advice when making any changes to your will. Here is an example of bequest language:
"I give, devise, and bequeath to Friends of FOKAL, c/o Open Society Foundation, Latin American and Caribbean Program, 8th Floor, 224 West 57th Street, New York, NY 10019 , the sum of $________(or a description of the specific asset), for the benefit of Friends of FOKAL and its general purposes."
In Your Life Insurance
Give a significant gift without dipping into your capital assets by naming Friends of FOKAL as a policy beneficiary. Upon payment of the policy, proceeds are paid to Friends of FOKAL. By doing this, you can make a generous gift and help ensure better lives for the people of Haiti.
We can also provide you with a copy of our IRS 501(c)(3) letter.
