Simple Steps for Creating a Lasting Legacy

Sometimes the gifts with the greatest impact are the simplest. Many Weizmann supporters amplify the impact of their lifetime gifts with a gift from their estate.

Whether your aim is fighting cancer, combating world hunger, creating innovative technologies, protecting our planet, or harnessing alternative energy, here are three simple measures you can take for creating a lasting legacy for Weizmann:

  1. Use a retirement plan: Simply name the American Committee for the Weizmann Institute of Science on the beneficiary designation form supplied by the trustee or custodian of your IRA, 401K, or other retirement plan.
  2. Use a life insurance policy: Simply name the American Committee for the Weizmann Institute of Science on the beneficiary designation form provided by your life insurance professional.
  3. Use a bank or brokerage account: Simply title or retitle a bank account as POD (payable on death), or a brokerage account or stock certificate as TOD (transfer on death), to the American Committee for the Weizmann Institute of Science.

Legal language for including Weizmann in your will:

I give, devise, and bequeath [property, percentage, dollar amount] to the American Committee for the Weizmann Institute of Science, Inc., a not-for-profit corporation organized under the laws of the State of New York, with offices presently at 633 Third Avenue, 20th Floor, New York, New York 10017. Tax ID Number: 13-1623886
