Planned Giving – Leaving a Legacy for Democracy

We hope you will consider joining the IRE Legacy Society. Members are dedicated supporters who have made a future financial commitment to support IRE for generations to come.

Membership is easy. No immediate donation is necessary. You simply need to name IRE as a beneficiary in your will, trust, life insurance, retirement plans, donor-advised fund, foundation or other estate plans.

Planned giving is an impactful way to leave a legacy and make a lasting investment to ensure IRE continues its mission to foster excellence in investigative journalism. It’s the best way to express your deep commitment to journalism and IRE 

Because of generous, forward-thinking people like you, watchdog journalism will have strong support well into the future. Your lasting contribution will help IRE’s work to shine the light on truth and protect democracy. 

 

Make your gift in two easy steps:

  1. Designate IRE as a beneficiary in your will, trust, life insurance, retirement plans, donor-advised fund, foundation or other estate plans.
  2. Let IRE know you’ve completed #1 above. To do so, complete this easy form or contact IRE’s director of partnerships Chris Vachon, chris@ire.org or 317-371-6780. 

 

Choosing IRE among your legacy priorities warrants our most sincere gratitude. To keep informed of IRE happenings, sign up here to receive the IRE newsletter Quick Hits.
