Planned Giving

Remember when we thought we could change the future? We still can.

The future needs an advocate.
Could it be you?

You can make a gift for peace and justice today that will keep giving well into the future generations. When you invest in the future with a planned gift to FCNL or the FCNL Education Fund, you:

  • support FCNL's Quaker witness in Washington in the years to come
  • educate friends about critical public policy issues;
  • give voice to your concerns for peace, justice, and God's creation;
  • sustain yourself with retirement income.

Here are some creative ways to benefit FCNL, yourself, and your loved ones all at the same time.

Name FCNL in Your Will

Make us part of your family. A gift through your will or estate is the easiest gift you can make today.

Put Your IRA to Work for FCNL

There's a simple, straightforward way to avoid income tax to your heirs on your retirement plan, while making a significant gift to FCNL.
