Become a PCRM Lifetime Partner
At PCRM, we have a very special group of dedicated and visionary supporters––our Lifetime Partners—who have each made long-term commitments to end the use of animals in education and research and to support the advancement of preventive, ethical medicine. Lifetime Partners plan ahead to help PCRM’s future work in a variety of ways, including naming PCRM as a beneficiary in wills, trusts, life insurance policies, and retirement plans. Planning ahead can provide tax-saving benefits now or for your estate in the future, and you will have peace of mind knowing that your hard-earned assets will be supporting a cause that is so important to you. If you’re thinking of leaving a lifelong legacy to support PCRM’s work, please contact Betsy Wason at 202-527-7366 or e-mail bwason@PCRM.org for more information.
