planned giving

By naming Search as a beneficiary in your will or other planned gift, you are expressing your commitment to an ever-more-peaceful world for your loved ones. Providing Search with long-term financial stability will keep us active in the most violent and divided areas of the world.

  • Transfer appreciated shares of stock to Search for immediate support of global peace
  • Trusts: Transfer assets into a trust to provide immediate or deferred support to Search while reserving financial benefits for you and your loved ones
  • Retirement Plans and Life Insurance: List Search as a beneficiary of your IRA, paid-up life insurance, or other retirement assets.

  • Public acknowledgement (with your permission) on Search’s website and in its Annual Report

What does your legacy support?

Search will use your funds where they are most needed – to expand successful projects to other areas, assess the opening of new country programs, support operations, and research new ways to create peace. Our top priority for planned gifts like yours is in the long-term organizational development that will enable Search to take its programs to scale, making peace the default.

Your legacy gift will manifest your values and vision for years to come!
