Matching Gifts

Some employers offer to match donations from their employees to Brookings, doubling the impact of your gift. We can help with any paperwork or other requirements you may need to take advantage of your company’s program.

Planned Giving

Including Brookings in your estate planning is a great way to have lasting impact on our work and leave behind a legacy of support for the very best in public policy research. You can name Brookings as the beneficiary of planned gifts such as bequests, retirement funds, and insurance policies, and of life income gifts such as charitable remainder trusts and charitable remainder annuity trusts. Some planned gifts allow you to enjoy tax and income benefits during your lifetimes while making a significant commitment to Brookings.
