Grassroots International

Legacy Giving

Grassroots International and our partners are in the struggle for the long haul – to create a more just and sustainable world, and to build global movements for social change.

By including Grassroots in your will, retirement plan or insurance policy, you help support the grantmaking and advocacy efforts that infuse life into global activism for land, water and food rights.

Join our Legacy Circle

Name Grassroots International as a beneficiary in your will. You can ensure that your values are carried forward, improve the lives of people around the world, and avoid certain estate taxes.

Learn more about sample bequest language:

  • Giving a percentage of your estate
  • Making a specific gift
  • Contributing the remainder or residue of your estate

Please consult an attorney when preparing any legal document.  We would also be happy to speak with you and your attorney  to make sure that you achieve your goals.  For more information, contact Kathy Asuncion at 617.524.1400 or

We would also love to acknowledge your participation in the Legacy Circle, so please let us know if you have included Grassroots International in your will.

FreeWill — Will-Writing Simplified

Most people don’t have an up-to-date will for a variety of reasons: it’s often time-intensive, too costly, or it’s just one of those tasks that falls by the wayside. To help alleviate the stress, Grassroots International has partnered with FreeWill to provide our supporters with an even easier (and free) way to write a will.

While we encourage you to contact us and your attorney for more in-depth legacy giving needs, FreeWill is a great resource for quick and simple will-writing. In only 20 minutes, you can ensure peace of mind for yourself and long-term support for the people and the grassroots movements you love.
