Wills and Living Trusts

Interested in helping Action Against Hunger with our mission but feel overwhelmed by the thought of writing another check or giving up your assets today? A simple, flexible and versatile way to ensure we can continue our work for years to come is a gift in your will or living trust, known as a charitable bequest.

A charitable bequest is one or two sentences in your will or living trust that leave to Action Against Hunger a specific item, an amount of money, a gift contingent upon certain events or a percentage of your estate.

You can use the following assets to fund a bequest:

A gift of cash is one of the most popular ways to support us after your lifetime. You may gift a specified sum of money or a percentage of your estate.

Appreciated Securities
A  gift in your will or trust of securities often allows you to make larger gifts than you could during your lifetime.

Real Estate
To avoid the administrative hassles of selling real estate during your lifetime, give it to us through a bequest.

Tangible Personal Property
Leave your legacy with a gift of antiques, stamp/coin collections or works of art.
