Legacy Giving: Ensuring the fight for a free press lives on
You’ve spent a lifetime fighting for and living the ideals of an open government and the freedoms of the First Amendment. Although the media in which future generations will report can scarcely be imagined now, these same ideals must remain constant: A free press, unfettered by government is the most important resource a participatory electorate has to know what its government is doing and to question that government if it doesn’t like what it sees.

You can help ensure that future First Amendment fighters have the materials and support they need by remembering the Reporters Committee in your will. More than two-thirds of our revenue is spent directly on program services, and your legacy support can be a significant part.

There are several ways in which you can remember the Reporters Committee in your will. You may designate the Reporters Committee to receive:

• an outright bequest for a fixed amount
• the residue of your estate
• a percentage of the residue of your estate
• a percentage of your entire estate
• a bequest contingent upon the failure of other bequests.
