Planned Giving and Bequests
As you plan your philanthropic legacy, please consider including a provision in your will that includes FACT as a beneficiary. This bequest language is suggested:
I bequeath to Food Animal Concerns Trust (FACT), a 501c3 nonprofit located in Chicago, IL, the sum of $___________ and/or (specifically described property).
Donations to FACT, a not-for-profit corporation exempt under Internal Revenue Code Section 501(c)(3), are tax-deductible (EIN: 36-3172605). Please contact us if you have any specific questions regarding including FACT in your planned giving.
Your employer, or your spouse’s employer, may match your donation to FACT—sometimes even triple the amount that you donate. Please contact your employer’s Human Resources, Community Engagement, or comparable department to determine if your company has a matching gift program. Typically a matching gift entails a short form that you fill out as the donor and then mail to FACT for our staff to complete and submit—thus doubling or tripling your generous gift!
Some companies allow employees to submit organizations or causes they personally support to be considered for company-wide gifts, which can include local grants, holiday give-backs, employee funding drives, or other charitable endeavors. Most often the same department that manages Matching Gifts programs also manages these types of company giving. Please consider reaching out to your company to see if there is a company giving program that FACT may be eligible for.
Without people like you, FACT would not be able to achieve the impact that we have on thousands of farm animals, dozens of farms and farmers, and countless consumers who deserve to have safe, healthy, and ethical food options. If you have any questions regarding your donation, please contact Sidney Freitag-Fey at firstname.lastname@example.org or at 773-525-4952 ext. 23. Thank you again for your generosity and kind support of our humane farming and food safety programs.
