Leaving a Legacy: A Gift to Future Generations

This article was first published in the Liberty Reporter: 2014 Fall Newsletter >>

When you consider the legacy you would like to leave to society, you may think of children who will enrich our world in so many ways, contributions you’ve made through your chosen career path, or engagement you’ve had with causes that are just.  

Please know that as an ACLU supporter, you are a valued part of a movement that was born almost 100 years ago in 1920.  It is an organization with staying power, an organization that will be here for the long haul to protect our civil liberties. Regardless of which political party is in power, regardless of where in the US civil liberties are being eroded, the ACLU will be there to defend our constitutional rights!

As you reflect on the values you share with ACLU – fairness, liberty, justice, equality, tolerance – and the legacy you would like to leave, please remember just how important your participation in the ACLU is.  The funding for our work depends heavily on individual supporters. Please consider leaving a bequest or other planned gift to the ACLU today and to future generations so that they can help uphold the values we share long into the future.  To learn more, go to www.aclu.org/legacy/legacy-home.
