Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)

Why do I need a Will or Living Trust?
With a Will or Living Trust, you get to determine exactly how your estate will be distributed.  When writing a Will or Living Trust, you’ll want to remember those who are important to you.  Because you’ve long cared about women and families who are less fortunate than you, you may also wish to include a gift to Grameen Foundation in your estate plan.

How do I leave a gift for Grameen Foundation in my estate plan?
Once you have made appropriate provisions for those you love, you may 1) leave a specific dollar amount; 2) name a specific asset, such as a stock or bond fund; or 3) leave a percentage of your estate to Grameen Foundation.
Grameen Foundation pledges to put your gift to the best possible use by helping families throughout the world break free from poverty.  Your lasting legacy will be a future of self-reliance and dignity for the next generation and beyond.

What if I already have a Will or Living Trust? 
Even if you already have a Will or Living Trust, you can include a gift to Grameen Foundation by changing your existing document(s).  To ensure that your specific wishes are carried out, changes should only be made with the advice of an attorney.

Are there other ways I can leave a gift to Grameen Foundation that don’t involve making or changing a Will or Living Trust? 
A simple way to make a gift to Grameen Foundation is to name Grameen Foundation as a  beneficiary on your life insurance policy, Individual Retirement Account, 401(k) or other retirement plan.  You may have many other creative ways to include a gift to Grameen Foundation in your estate planning. It is worth investigating.
