Why You Should Leave a Charitable Bequest to The American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU)

Taking on the vital work of challenging injustice and fighting for civil liberties is the backbone of what the ACLU does. They dedicate every effort toward guarding the liberties afforded to all people in this country. Their tireless pursuit of justice is demonstrated as they fight in communities, at the legislative level and in the courts, defending those whose rights have been violated in one way or another. 

Founded in 1920, the ACLU has one underlying theme that they work towards, every single day: to protect American values. Taking their lead from the liberties guaranteed through the Constitution and the Bill of Rights, they tackle the timeless issues witnessed since the beginning of our country’s history. Issues such as censorship, homophobia, racism, religious intolerance, sexism and more have threatened to shred the very fabrics of our democracy, but the ACLU stands strong in its mission. 

Including a Planned Gift to the ACLU in your Estate Plan is an excellent decision. It’s a way to do your part in ensuring that this unique and powerful organization has what it needs to continue to fight for justice and against equality far into the future.
