Bequests

Make an Impact: Give to Refugees in Your Will or Living Trust

Helping refugees is important to you, and leaving a gift to IRIS allows us to continue to welcome refugees for years to come. A gift in your will or living trust, known as a charitable bequest, ensures that IRIS will remain a national leader in welcoming refugees, one of America’s oldest and most noble traditions. Your gift also entitles your estate to an unlimited federal estate-tax charitable deduction.

You can use the following assets to fund a bequest:

Cash

Appreciated Securities

Tangible Personal Property

Closely Held Stock
