You can honor Physicians for Human Rights in your will with a bequest. Your gift can be in the form of cash, stocks, bonds, or other personal property. Your estate will receive a charitable tax deduction for the value of your gift as allowed by law. You can name a specific dollar amount or designate a percentage of your estate. Making a bequest is an easy way to support PHR’s work to identify, document, and advocate to end the worst human rights abuses in the world.
All bequests go to support PHR’s general operations unless otherwise specified.
