Please remember Consumer Reports in your estate plans

You can help Consumer Reports remain expert, independent and nonprofit by including us in your estate plans. Your generosity will ensure that we can carry out our mission and continue to protect and educate consumers well into the future.

Remembering Consumer Reports is easily accomplished by allocating either a specific dollar amount or a percentage of the assets in your will or trust. You can also designate other types of property such as real estate or securities, or designate Consumer Reports as a beneficiary of a retirement account or life insurance policy.

Since Consumer Reports is recognized as a 501(c) (3) public charity, your bequest is fully deductible for estate tax purposes. And by letting us know that you have included Consumer Reports in your will or trust, you will become a valued member of the Consumer Reports Legacy Society.

You can make a difference beyond your lifetime by creating a lasting legacy in your name.

You should refer to Consumer Reports in your will or trust as:

Consumers Union of United States, Inc., Yonkers, NY
Tax ID# 13-1776434

Sample language to share with your estate planning professional:

"I give and bequeath (The Trustee shall distribute) to Consumers Union of United States, Inc., Yonkers, New York, the sum of $__________ (or ____ percent of the rest and residue of my estate or trust) to be used by it for its general charitable purposes."
