Leaving a gift is easy and rewarding

Many people are surprised to learn how easy it is to make a lasting difference by leaving a gift in their will, trust or by beneficiary designation.

Benefits to You:

  • You can take care of your family first.
  • Your gift costs you nothing now and may help you save on taxes.
  • You are not locked in and can change your mind if circumstances change.
  • You can be remembered for making a difference.

How to Name PAI as a Beneficiary

Advance sexual and reproductive health and rights around the globe simply by signing your name on a beneficiary designation form from your account manager.

Step 1: Obtain the appropriate forms from the company that manages your account on the company website or by calling the customer service number on your statement to request a form be mailed to you.

Step 2: Write in PAI as a beneficiary and use our employer identification number (EIN), 52-0812075, where the form asks for a Social Security number.

Step 3: Submit the form to your administrator and let us know about your gift so we can thank you and ensure your wishes are fulfilled. Simply email us at donations@pai.org.
