Legacy gifts

The Legacy Circle is an initiative for people of vision. It is a Circle for those determined to keep their values alive – forever – and who dream of a safe and peaceful society for future generations.

Why should I leave a bequest to The Center for Family Justice?

Your bequest in your will continues the work you support today: the dream of safe, healthy communities and a world where no child or adult is ever abused again. It ensures the future viability and strength of The Center for Family Justice.

What will a bequest gift achieve?

Picture the community you love free of domestic abuse and sexual assault. A lofty goal, but one your bequest will help bring to future generations. Your bequest will enable all children and adults to learn how to build healthy relationships – the most effective way to break the cycle of violence. It will help eliminate domestic abuse, sexual assault, bullying and dating violence.

Based on past portfolio returns, a bequest of $20,000 could be expected to generate approximately $1,000 per year in perpetuity.

How do I leave a bequest in my will?

Leaving a bequest is simple. All it takes is a quick phone call to your attorney. You can designate a bequest to endowment or the general fund in a specific amount, leave a percentage of your estate, or select assets such as securities, life insurance policies, retirement plans and IRAs.

Should I tell you I have left a bequest?

Yes! Please let us know that you have made a bequest to The Center. We’d like to thank you for your generosity and welcome you as a member of our Legacy Circle.
