Give Through Your Will
Support the programs at APSA that have been important in your life or honor a family member with a bequest. Our suggested donation wording below can be shared with your attorney:
“I give [insert a percentage]
of my estate to American Political Science Association, Tax ID 53-0200001, 1527 New Hampshire Avenue, NW, Washington, DC, 20036.”
If you already have a will, a simple codicil can be added. For your convenience, prewritten wording is available here.
A cost-effective way to make a donation without the hassle of a will is to name APSA as a beneficiary to a life insurance policy. Contact your insurance provider and complete a beneficiary designation form.
Another simple way to donate without a will is through your retirement plan. You can name APSA as your retirement plan beneficiary by filling out the appropriate form with your plan administrator.
Bank or Brokerage Account
You can also name APSA as a beneficiary of your savings accounts, CDs, and other bank accounts by designating your account as Payable on Death (POD) to the American Political Science Association. Similarly, APSA can be named a beneficiary of your brokerage accounts by designating your account as Transfer on Death (TOD) to the American Political Science Association.
