A simple way to plan a significant gift is to make a bequest in your will. By including The MATCH Fund as a beneficiary in your will, you significantly reduce the tax paid by your estate and leave a lasting legacy of your support for women’s equality.

There are several ways to make a bequest:

  • A specific bequest is a gift of a specific amount of cash or asset.
  • A residual bequest is a gift of a portion, or the balance of, your estate once all expenses, debts, taxes, and other bequests have been paid out.
  • A contingent bequest is a gift that takes effect only if the original beneficiary of the gift does not survive you.

Legacy Circle

The Legacy Circle acknowledges dedicated supporters and friends who have planned to leave a bequest to The MATCH International Women’s Fund.

By joining the Legacy Circle, you let us know that you have made a decision to support our work and efforts for women’s rights.

You do not need to share specifics on your gift and, of course, you can choose to remain anonymous. Letting us know about your planned future gift, allows us to thank you and inspires others to leave a legacy gift as well.
