Planned Giving Legacy Society

Now is the opportunity for you to join a growing number of dedicated individuals who are committed to the long-term success of NACDL by including the NFCJ as a beneficiary in their wills, charitable trusts, and retirement plans. Join the NFCJ Legacy Society and invest in our future.

Planned Giving and Estate Planning allows:

  • YOU to decide where your assets go,
  • YOU to ensure your philanthropic wishes are known,
  • YOU to align those wishes with YOUR overall financial and estate goals,
  • YOU to support the mission of NFCJ beyond your lifetime, and
It gives peace of mind to your loved ones.


NFCJ accepts many forms of planned gifts including - 

         Direct bequest from your estate which may include cash, securities, real estate, and/or personal property. It can be for a specific amount or for a percentage of your estate,

         Retirement plans such as assets from your individual retirement account, pension plan, profit sharing plan, stock bonus plan, 401(k) or 403(b) or life insurance policies, and

        Charitable Remainder Unitrust (CRUT) provides income to a named beneficiary during the donor's lifetime and then the remainder of the trust to a charitable cause.

Please talk to your personal financial consultant to develop a plan that works best for you. Contact NFCJ staff for simple language that can be added to any will to ensure that NACDL Foundation for Criminal Justice is included in your basic estate plans. Be sure to let us know that you have made these arrangements so we can recognize your generosity.  And please ask your planner to include the EIN 52-2289169 to ensure the Foundation is the beneficiary.

The staff at the NFCJ and NACDL is ready to work with you and your consultants to develop a gift opportunity that meets your needs and helps you to achieve your financial and philanthropic goals.  For more information, or for help, please contact: H. Clay Braswell, Jr. at 202-465-7641 or
