Leave a Legacy of Challenging Injustice


Planned Giving Is For Everyone

Many Virginia Organizing supporters choose to leave a donation in their wills and trusts as an important way to have long-term impact, without any upfront cost during their lifetimes.

Making a will is one of the most impactful ways to extend your love and generosity for your family and friends. It can also help empower people to make positive change in local communities.

By leaving a gift to Virginia Organizing in your will or trust, you are building a powerful legacy of combating injustice.

Legacy giving isn’t only for the wealthy — gifts of any size are deeply appreciated, and there is a wide range in gift sizes from $50 to $1 million.

  3. Rest assured knowing you’ll be making positive change for generations to come.
