Bequests

A bequest is a gift made to Amnesty International (AIUSA) through your will. This is an excellent and easy way to make a tangible statement of how you value human rights.

Bequests can be for a specific dollar amount or for a percentage of your estate. Your gift may be in the form of cash, stocks, or bonds. Your estate will receive an estate tax charitable deduction for the full amount of your cash bequest to AIUSA or for the fair market value of other donated assets.
