Planned Giving

By including Equality California Institute in your estate plan, or other types of planned gifts, you are ensuring a stronger future for our organization and will create a lasting impact on the LGBTQ+ community. A gift in your will, trust or some other venue will ensure your values are continually put into action in your memory.

  • In your will or trust, please include details on whether your gift will be unrestricted and can be used for general operations or restricted to a specific program or use.
  • You may reach out to us for sample language, if that would be helpful.
