Legacy Giving


By including in your will, you can guarantee that your investment in nutrition research will continue on. You can leave a legacy by naming a beneficiary of:

  • A specific dollar amount or estate property
  • A specific percentage of your estate
  • A specific percentage of your residuary estate (the % that is left after all other bequests and/or expenses have been paid)

Your attorney may opt to use the following language when making an endowment to

“I give, devise, and bequeath to, a nonprofit organization with federal tax identification number 05-0559626, located at P.O. Box 11400, Takoma Park, MD 20913, the sum of $___ (or the property and/or portion of the estate) to be used for its general purposes.”

Living Trust

Naming as a beneficiary of your living trust ensures your ongoing support for nutrition research. Unlike a will, a living trust takes effect immediately upon your passing and is also revocable.

In order to name as a trustee, you must transfer ownership of specified assets from your name to You will have use of all of these assets while knowing that they will someday support a worthy cause. When filling out the legal documents with your attorney, please use this material:
