Over the years bequests large and small have played a critical role in providing for the League's immediate needs. They also inspire Leagues to undertake new projects and challenges.
A gift to the League of Women Voters of the City of New York Education Fund (LWVNYCEF) qualifies for a federal estate tax deduction and will support our education and research efforts. A bequest can be an ideal way to honor a loved one or to support particular League activities.
Including the League in your will can be as simple as adding a codicil or amendment to your current will. The following is suggested language for your lawyer to use to draft a bequest to the LWVNYCEF:
"I bequeath to the League of Women Voters of the City of New York Education Fund, with offices at 4 West 43rd Street, New York, NY 10036, (specify gift amount or property)."
