Accuracy in Media

Planned Giving

By including Accuracy in Media in your will, you help us to fight media bias for years to come.

The language in your will can be as simple as “I hereby give, devise and bequeath to Accuracy in Media (AIM) (Tax ID# 23-7135837) of Bethesda, MD, the sum of $_______________.”  Or “I hereby give, devise and bequest to Accuracy in Media (AIM) (Tax ID# 23-7135837) of Bethesda, MD, all (or state a percentage) of the rest, residue, and remainder of my estate, both real and personal, to be used for its general support (or for the support of a specific fund or program).”

Because AIM is a non-profit charitable organization, your bequest is free of estate taxes.

You can also name AIM as a beneficiary of your life insurance policy or your retirement plan (such as a 401(k), 403(b), IRA or other pension plan).  By naming AIM as a beneficiary, you maintain complete control over the plan while living, but at your passing the plan passes to AIM free of both income and estate taxes.

AIM can be named as a primary beneficiary for part or all of the assets in the plan, or as a contingent beneficiary, or as a beneficiary at the death of your surviving spouse.  Please ask your insurance agent, your employer or the financial institution managing your retirement plan for the proper forms.

Please consult with your personal financial advisor regarding the legal and tax benefits of all estate and planned gifts.

By making a bequest in the form of cash, securities, real estate or other assets, you will be investing in the continuation of AIM’s vital work to hold the media accountable.  If you choose to make this kind of gift, you will become a member of our Reed Irvine Legacy Society, which was established in 2005 to honor our founder and his pioneering work in the fields of media criticism and investigative journalism.

By including Accuracy in Media in your estate plans, you will honor Reed Irvine’s vision that made AIM into such a powerful force for change and you will have a profound influence on how future generations, including those of your grandchildren and great-grandchildren, regard the news.

Please contact AIM toll-free at 800-787-4567 ext. 103 (or email spencer.irvine@aim.org) if you have any questions!
