Why Have a Will?
Creating a Will or Trust is an opportunity to help those people and organizations that mean the most to you and to potentially reduce the tax burden on your heirs. It is a chance to create your vision for the future and to think about the values you hope to pass on to future generations. A will provides for your financial security today while providing a lasting legacy by directing financial assistance to those people who need it and to the organizations that are special to you.
If you die without a will, your property will be taxed and distributed according to the rules and formulas of your state’s laws.

Meet with an attorney to direct the gifts of your property to those you choose and in a tax- efficient manner.
Already Have a Will?
Review your will every couple years to make sure life events like marriages, births, deaths or personal circumstances don’t require you to amend it to reflect your situation today.
Is the Mission of PROLIFE Across AMERICA Important to You?
If you include PROLIFE Across AMERICA in your will by specifying the organization will receive a specific dollar amount or a percentage of your estate as a bequest, you:
- Will be providing a lasting contribution that will help us continue to change hearts and save babies’ lives through our Billboards, Radio Ads, College Kiosk Ads and Internet Ads.
- Can be assured your bequest will be used wisely, given our history of putting over 90% of donations directly toward Media Education.
Donors who have already have planned a bequest to PROLIFE Across AMERICA in an existing will or trust or will be making a Planned Gift through a bequest in a Will or Trust have the option of being enrolled in our Culture of Life Legacy Society. Please let us know of your plans by completing the Declaration of Support form.
