Discover the Benefits of
Giving Wisely to MRC

You believe in the work of the Media Research Center, and you want to make sure that we will continue to restore political balance and responsbility to the news media well into the future. You want your gift to make a difference for us, but are concerned about your own future financial needs and those of your family.

We deeply appreciate your assistance, and will try to make it as rewarding for you as it is for us. That's why we want you to know about the financial tools you can use to plan your gift to us in a way that returns tax and/or income benefits to you or your family:

  • You don't have to use cash to make your gift -- you can give us appreciated securities instead, and receive important income and capital gains tax savings in return.
  • You may be holding assets that would benefit MRC more than they do you -- such as a life insurance policy that you no longer need, a parcel of real estate like a second home or undeveloped land, or a collection of books or artwork that you no longer have room to display.
  • You can make a gift that costs you nothing during your lifetime - make us a beneficiary of your will or revocable trust, or a beneficiary of your retirement plan, and leave your cash flow and current financial plans undistrubed.
  • You can make MRC a partner in your giving -- you can deed us your home but continue to live there, and you can make a gift that pays you lifetime income.

These tools are called planned gifts, and this website is the place to learn more about them. Where to start? If you already know something about your giving options, click on Ways to Give Wisely and go right to the planned gifts that you want to read more about. If you're not sure how a gift can meet both your charitable and personal goals, go to Discover the Benefits of Giving Wisely to learn how planned gifts work and how they can stretch your giving ability.

"I have decided to bequeath to the MRC a major gift because I believe the MRC is the only organization dedicated to getting the truth out on the news of the day which is otherwise very badly skewed to the left..."
