Gifts that leave a legacy

Will or Trusts

A gift in your will or trust is a popular way to support our work and still use your assets during your lifetime. The following is an example of how to add Autism Speaks as a primary or contingent beneficiary to your will or trust. As always, we encourage you to work with your attorney or financial advisor prior to use.

Sample gift language:
I, [name] give [insert specific $ dollar amount or % percentage] to Autism Speaks Inc., currently located at 1060 State Road, 2nd floor, Princeton, NJ 08540 in support of its mission. Autism Speaks federal tax identification number is: 20-2329938.

Beneficiary Designations 

By naming Autism Speaks as a beneficiary of the following investment instruments, you and your heirs can likely avoid inheritance taxes.

  • life insurance policies
  • individual retirement accounts (IRA) - such as 401(k) and 403(b)
  • annuities – provided the plan continues after death
  • checking, savings or other financial accounts

Contact your insurance company, retirement account holder, financial advisor or bank to request a beneficiary designation form. To complete the form, use our legal name and federal tax ID below:
