You can help support the work of Freedom of the Press Foundation by donating gifts of stock or by leaving a lasting legacy through our planned giving program.


Make a Gift of Stock

You can help us further our efforts to defend press freedom with the gift of stock — and the value of stocks upon sale is usable as a tax-deductible credit.

We will need to know the identity and address of the donor, as well as any restrictions to the gift (for example, a gift intended for use within a particular state or program area). If requested, we will honor a donor’s request for anonymity and will use contact information for internal record-keeping only.

If you would like to make an electronic transfer of stock, please email our Director of Philanthropy, Louise Balsmeyer at [email protected]


Make a Planned Gift

By including a gift to Freedom of the Press Foundation (FPF) in your estate plans, you help secure the long-term future of our work, and ensure the preservation and strengthening of the rights guaranteed to the press under the First Amendment.

There are many ways to include a gift in your estate plans, including a simple bequest, making FPF a beneficiary of your retirement or investment account, as well as gifts of real estate, endowments, and many more options. Gifts to FPF also entitle your estate to an unlimited federal estate tax charitable deduction.

For more information and details on the options to make a planned gift that’s right for you, please contact Louise Balsmeyer at [email protected].
