Planned Giving

Be a torch bearer for the New York Society for Ethical Culture. Whether you are writing your first will or updating an existing one, we hope you’ll choose to include a gift to the New York Society for Ethical Culture in your plans. Your generosity provides a lasting legacy to Ethical Culture ideals. A bequest to NYSEC will light the way for generations to come.

You don’t have to be a millionaire to make a difference in the world. Charitable bequests are for everyone and anyone. They are both sensible and simple gifts. A bequest allows you to be generous and keep your financial options open. You can use your will to give a specific dollar amount, a percentage of your estate, or a specific item, such as real estate, a boat, artwork, the family silver, copyright or royalty income, or savings bonds. Bequests and other estate gifts come in all shapes and sizes and are as different as the people who create them.

Anyone can make a meaningful gift to NYSEC in their will. Regardless of the amount, your bequest is a statement of your ethical values. Your gift provides a continuing voice for social justice and caring community. When you demonstrate that you care enough about our Society to support its future, others will follow your generous example.

The Future of the New York Society for Ethical Culture is in your hands. Ensure that NYSEC will grow and prosper, that we can continue to be a voice for compassion and social justice and that our Society will be here for years to come. Make your mark and provide an important lasting legacy.
