Bequests and Planned Gifts
Planned giving can make a big difference to StoryCorps and to your family. While every gift made to StoryCorps is appreciated, those that chose to include StoryCorps in their estates are leaving an enduring level of support that is sure to be remembered.
When you include StoryCorps in your plans, you affirm your value in our mission to celebrate the stories of everyday people. Preserve your legacy as a dedicated StoryCorps supporter by joining The Storied Society with a planned gift today.
Naming StoryCorps as a beneficiary of a will, retirement account, life insurance policy or trust is the most frequently utilized planned gift option for members of the Story Society.
These generous and thoughtful gifts enable StoryCorps to plan long-term strategies for our content and initiatives, while also supporting our work to create a culture of listening in America.
Should you chose to include StoryCorps in your estate, below is some sample language you can use:
“I hereby give and bequeath [amount in dollars or percentage amount] to StoryCorps Inc., a New York based nonprofit, 501(c)(3) tax exempt organization, having federal tax identification number 13-3753011, with its headquarters currently located at 80 Hanson Place Brooklyn, NY 11217, for its’ general purposes.”
