A Legacy of RESULTS through Planned Giving

Your commitment to ending poverty can extend beyond your lifetime with a planned gift to RESULTS Educational Fund, our 501(c)(3) tax-deductible arm.* By supporting a healthy, thriving future for RESULTS, you will also help to ensure a more just, equitable, and healthy future for all.  

Naming RESULTS Educational Fund in your will or trust, or as a beneficiary of a life insurance policy or retirement account, is a powerful way to magnify your impact, as our advocacy leverages your gift many times. Additionally, these gifts can offer personal and financial advantages to you while providing RESULTS with an invaluable source of support: 

  • A planned gift is simple to set up and you can change it at any time 
  • You remain in control of your assets during your lifetime 
  • Your planned gift may be larger than what you are able to donate during your lifetime, allowing you to contribute even more to ending poverty 
  • Depending on the type of gift, you or your loved ones may receive financial and tax benefits 

Talk to your financial advisor to discuss how a planned gift fits into your financial plans. (See below for the types of planned gifts we can accept and suggested language.) Once you have made your wishes known to your family and counsel, please let us know so we can welcome you as a member of the RESULTS Legacy Society! 

Thank you for your support of our life-changing and lifesaving work! 

*RESULTS Educational Fund is a tax-exempt organization (Federal Tax ID #95-3747267), and donations are tax-deductible. RESULTS, Inc. is a 501(c)(4), and gifts are not tax-deductible.

Types of Planned Gifts

You can arrange a gift of an asset, a specific amount, or a percentage of your account or estate after gifts to loved ones and expenses have been paid. Several options exist to provide a legacy gift to RESULTS: 

  • A Specific Bequest: A particular asset that you designate.
  • A Residual Bequest: A percentage of your estate or your residual estate that you designate.
  • A Contingent Bequest: A gift made if your beneficiaries do not survive you. 
  • Life Insurance or Retirement Account Bequest: Naming RESULTS Educational Fund as the owner and/or beneficiary of a new or existing life insurance or retirement policy. 

The following is suggested language for bequests to benefit RESULTS Educational Fund, Inc.: 
“I give, devise, and bequeath to RESULTS Educational Fund, Inc., 1101 15th Street NW, Suite 1200, Washington, DC 20005, Federal Tax ID #95-3747267, (either) [the sum of $________ ] (or) [________% of the rest, residue, and remainder of my estate, both real and personal] for sole charitable purposes.” 

To discuss your legacy at RESULTS, please contact Melissa Strobel, Director of Development, at [email protected] or (202) 783-4800 ext. 2.

“When we were doing our wills many years ago, I considered all the organizations I was donating to. I think there’s no better bang for the buck than the money that goes to RESULTS. The leveraging principle was what appealed to me the most.”
