ACOG Foundation - Planned Giving

Including a gift in your estate to the ACOG Foundation is a powerful way to support our specialty for decades to come.

This tool is free to you whether you choose to include a gift to the ACOG Foundation or not and can be used to create your full legal will, for free, or begin your plans before seeing a lawyer.

Please notify Kathleen Kenny at or 202-863-2479 to be enrolled in the Legacy Society when you decide to leave a gift to the ACOG Foundation.

Before finalizing your estate plans, there are several gift arrangements to consider:


A bequest in your will or trust is an easy way to provide for family while also helping to secure the ACOG Foundation's future. If you are considering a bequest to the ACOG Foundation, here is some suggested wording to take to your attorney:

After fulfilling all other specific provisions, I give, devise and bequeath ___% of the remainder (or $___) of my estate to the ACOG Foundation, a charitable corporation (Tax ID #32217981) currently having offices at 409 12th Street SW, Washington, DC 20024"

Donate Appreciated Securities

You can bequest gifts of stock now or in your estate plans.

Life Insurance

You can make the ACOG Foundation a beneficiary of a life insurance policy.

Retirement Assets

For those who are 70 ½ or older, consider making a gift to the ACOG Foundation from your IRA.  You can make tax-free gifts up to $100,000 per person, per year ($200,000 for couples).  By giving directly from your IRA, you won’t increase your adjusted gross income and possibly subject your Social Security income to a higher level of taxation.

A second option is to make the ACOG Foundation a beneficiary of a specific amount or percentage of your retirement plan assets.

Contact: As with all decisions related to your estate planning, we encourage you to work with your financial advisor and planned giving attorney when considering a gift to the ACOG Foundation. For more information, contact Kathleen Kenny at or at 202-863-2479.
