How to Include Immigration Equality in Your Will:

Leaving a gift to Immigration Equality in your will is a simple process. You can include a bequest by designating a specific dollar amount, a percentage of your estate, or even the remainder of your estate after providing for your loved ones. If you already have a will, it’s easy to make an amendment, called a codicil, to include Immigration Equality. We recommend consulting with your attorney or financial advisor to ensure your wishes are accurately reflected.
