Wills and Trusts

Include a charitable gift to Direct Relief in your will or trust

When you leave a bequest to Direct Relief you create one of the most meaningful legacies you can give—helping deliver essential medicine and medical resources to people who are affected by future poverty, natural disasters, and other emergencies.

Anyone can make a charitable bequest to Direct Relief, in any amount. A bequest can be as simple as a certain dollar amount, an identified piece of real estate, or a percent of what you own at the end of your life. If you don’t have a will or a trust when you pass away, state law determines what happens to your money and other property.

This information is offered to help you understand some of your options for making a charitable gift to Direct Relief. Only a lawyer or tax professional can give you tax advice.

To make a bequest gift to Direct Relief you will need the following information:

Legal Name: Direct Relief
Address: 6100 Wallace Becknell Road, Santa Barbara, California 93117
Phone Number: (805) 964-4767
Employer Identification Number (EIN): 95-1831116

Please notify Direct Relief if you choose to make a bequest. Doing so will allow us to thank you for your generosity and help ensure your gift is properly recognized when received.
