Creating a Compassionate Future

Most of us want to be sure that our work for a more compassionate world carries on well into the future. A simple bequest provision can make that happen. Investment accounts and tangible property, such as real estate and artwork, can be identified in a will and designated to benefit a particular person or organization. Many people are now creating wills at a younger age, and it’s never too early if you have assets to pass along. PCRM recommends working with an attorney specializing in wills. The cost for creating a basic will is very reasonable, and the resulting peace of mind is invaluable. Every five years, you should evaluate your will and make updates as needed.

Members who include PCRM in their wills are part of our special group of Lifetime Partners. To learn more about our Lifetime Partner program and about creating a will, visit
