Including Planned Parenthood of the St. Louis Region in your will or estate plans is one of the most meaningful ways to support family planning and reproductive rights. Planned gifts can be made through your estate or financial plans and can include bequests designated in a will or living trust, as well as life income gifts. By supporting the future of Planned Parenthood in this way, you are creating a legacy for the principles and values most important to you.
Please see our 2013 Legacy Circle Planned Giving Guide:
Why We Give
"We are grateful for the women and men who came before us and worked so hard to ensure every woman, man, and teen in our community has access to the reproductive health care and education they need. This is why we made the decision to commit to Planned Parenthood by becoming members of Planned Parenthood's Legacy Circle. Legacy Circle donors are those donors who have made a commitment to the health of future generations by providing for Planned Parenthood in their estate plans.
Protecting reproductive rights and access to services for future generations depends on building a strong and sustaining movement. Supporting Planned parenthood is part of what we do to pay it forward for future generations. Legacy Circle is ensuring that future generations will have access to the care and education they need." - Legacy Circle Donor
Naming Planned Parenthood in Your Will
Your will affirms, honors, and protects what matters most to you. Through a specific bequest, you can name a particular dollar amount, or through a residuary bequest, you can give all or part of what is remaining after payment of debts, expenses, and specific bequests. If you would like to make such a gift to Planned Parenthood, your attorney may wish to include language similar to the following:
"I give, devise, and bequeath to Planned Parenthood of the St. Louis Region or its successor, now or formerly at 4251 Forest Park Avenue, St. Louis, MO 63108, a gift of ($_____ or _____ percent of the rest, residue, and remainder of my estate), to be used for its general purposes."
Planned Parenthood is pleased to recognize the men and women who are providing for the future of family planning and reproductive rights through their estate plans. After informing us of your plans, we will extend an invitation into our recognition society, whose members are listed in our annual report and invited to special events each year.
