The Weiland Society, Leaving a Legacy for the Future

The Weiland Society was established to recognize individuals who have created gifts to GLSEN through tax-wise planned giving. The most frequently planned gifts are made by naming GLSEN, Inc. as a beneficiary of a will, retirement account, life insurance policy or trust. Gifts made by Weiland Society members enable GLSEN to plan long-term for the programs, activities, and advocacy that will help us realize our vision of ending anti-LGBT bullying and harassment and providing a safe school climate for all regardless of sexual orientation or gender identity. A Weiland Society member does not need to have a large income or to amass great personal wealth. Most of us have accumulated some assets and care about what person or cause they will benefit in the future. Life and estate planning often allow a larger fight to be made than originally anticipated. You can make a lasting contribution toward ensuring safe schools free of bullying, harassing, and biased behavior by considering a bequest gift to GLSEN, Inc.

Here is some sample language:

"I hereby give and bequeath [amount in dollars or percentage amount] to GLSEN, Inc., a Massachusetts nonprofit, 501(c)(3) tax exempt organization, having federal tax identification number 04-3234202, with its headquarters currently located at 110 William Street, 30th Floor, New York, NY 10038, for its' general purposes."
