PMC's Visionary Society: People with a future-focused interest in a sustainable world.
You’ve probably heard of Legacy Societies, a typical name for the group of people who make planned gifts such as bequests. PMC calls this group the Visionary Society: people with a future-focused interest in a sustainable world. It is a mindset that values the good of the community above self-interest. It acknowledges the responsibility of each of us to promote individual and societal well-being. That sums up the kind of supporter PMC already has. That’s you.
Population Media Center (PMC) works worldwide using entertainment-education for social change. PMC’s programs improve human health, enhance human rights, and protect the environment. PMC supporters help ensure this work continues with planned gifts to the PMC Visionary Society. Your estate plan – such as a bequest, a gift of life insurance, an allocation from your retirement plan, or a charitable trust – is your legacy to future generations. It’s a way to provide for people and causes that are important to you.
How do Estate Plans Work?
When you notify us that PMC is part of your estate plan, you will be included as a member of the Visionary Society. You may leave PMC an unrestricted or restricted gift; unrestricted gifts are the most useful since they can be used where the need is greatest. We encourage you to consult with a legal or financial professional to determine the best vehicle for your estate plans. (We are happy to discuss your intentions and provide guidance, but we cannot provide legal advice.) Estate plans can take different forms. Here are a few options:
