Plan Wisely – for Today’s Needs and for Tomorrow

How do you take care of the people and things that matter most to you – now and for the future?

Through careful planning, you can benefit your loved ones and your charitable interests while investing in equity for women and girls. Some reasons to create a plan include:

• Taking care of loved ones
• Memorializing someone you care about
• Advancing equity for women and girls through AAUW
• Increasing current income for you and/or others
• Passing more on to heirs with reduced taxes
• Reducing income tax
• Avoiding capital gains tax

As you consider what is important to you and how to reflect that in your legacy, we invite you to reach out to us. Our knowledgeable gift planning staff is available to assist with any questions you may have. You may also request a Legacy Circle brochure by calling or emailing AAUW’s National Office. You can make a difference in the lives of women and girls by joining the AAUW Legacy Circle.

For assistance, contact Heather Miller at: 202-785-7766 or by email, at


If you are considering including AAUW National in your estate plans, please accept our thanks. So often, wonderful and committed AAUW members make these gifts, but we are unable to thank them because we don’t learn of their decision during their lifetime. We ask that you let us know so we may honor and celebrate you in the Legacy Circle. These gifts make
a huge difference, and we are deeply grateful for your generosity.

Here is some suggested wording for your attorney: “After fulfilling all other specific provisions, I give, devise, and bequeath ___% of the residue [or $______ if a specific amount] to AAUW National, a District of Columbia charitable corporation [Tax ID #52-6037388] currently having offices located at 1310 L Street NW, Suite 1000, Washington, DC 20005.”
