EMILY's List

We ignite change by getting pro-choice
Democratic women elected to office.


EMILY’s List Legacy Fund



Thanks to your commitment to our work and your generous support of EMILY’s List over many years, much has changed for women in our society, partly through the efforts of the many pro-choice Democratic women you have helped us elect.

As you well know, our work together is far from done. Perhaps you’re like many EMILY’s List supporters who say “I wish I could do more.” Leaving a gift to the EMILY’s List Legacy Fund through your will or trust or by beneficiary designation is an opportunity to ensure that your values—values that reject apathy and the status quo in favor of social justice, equality and progressive change—can live on.

Making a gift that establishes your lasting legacy for women is easy to accomplish.

Most gifts:

  • Cost you nothing now. You retain your assets until you no longer need them;
  • Preserve your options — you are not locked in to a decision you make today. You can change your beneficiaries at any time;
  • Enable you to leave gifts to loved ones and leave a gift for EMILY’s List;
  • Allow you to remain anonymous, should you choose to do so; and
  • Ensure your lasting legacy in the fight to ensure that our families can benefit from the open-minded, productive contributions that women have consistently made in office.

Here are some of the most popular options:

A Bequest in Your Will or Living Trust – Leave a gift to EMILY’s List by bequest in your will or trust. Bequests are one of the most popular options for creating a legacy because they are so flexible. To name EMILY’s List a beneficiary, please use our correct legal name (EMILY's List) and our Federal tax identification number (52-1391360).

Naming EMILY’s List a Beneficiary of a Life Insurance Policy, Retirement Plan Savings, a Certificate of Deposit or other Investment Account(s) – Many assets transfer by the beneficiary designation form you completed when you established your account, rather than through your will or trust. To name EMILY’s List a beneficiary, please use our correct legal name (EMILY's List) and our Federal tax identification number (52-1391360).

Notifying us of your gift is the best way to ensure that we receive the gift that you have planned for us. We also want to say ‘thank you’ and to work with you to create a statement of intent that ensures your wishes are honored when you are no longer here to speak for yourself.

Have additional questions? We’re here to help! To discuss the gift option that’s best for you, please submit an online request, and we will contact you.
