Leave Your Legacy with CLS


Double Your Impact Now Through CLS’ Endowment

Thanks to the generosity of one of CLS’ founders, every dollar up to $500,000 bequeathed to CLS’ Endowment will be matched dollar for dollar right now!

Time is limited to take advantage of this unique matching opportunity. CLS must match this grant in full—through commitments or direct gifts—by the end of March 2023 to receive the matching funds.


Why should I consider CLS in my legacy plan?

CLS is committed to serving Jesus Christ through the practice of law, the defense of religious freedom, and the provision of legal aid to the poor and needy.

By including CLS in your will, you help to provide the financial support essential to achieving our long-term goals and implementing larger scale programs than the demands of our yearly budget allows.

It helps ensure that the Word of God is—and forever will be—proclaimed by faithful Christian attorneys in the legal profession.

We ask that you consider joining with others who have decided to leave a legacy with CLS by including CLS in your legacy plan today.


How do I include CLS in my legacy plan?

Leaving a charitable bequest in your will or living trust is a very simple, but important, way to help CLS over the long term.

To make a charitable bequest, please review the following language with your attorney:

I give, devise, and bequeath to Christian Legal Society (insert amount, percentage, or remainder of estate) to be used for general purposes (or your designated purposes).

You may also:

  • Name CLS as the beneficiary of your retirement account or insurance policy.
  • Establish a charitable gift annuity, charitable remainder trust, or charitable lead trust.
  • Consider giving to CLS with your Mandatory Minimum Distribution from your IRA or retirement account. Your IRA or retirement account can be directed to CLS and never be subject to taxation.

Remember, CLS’ Endowment match is only available for a limited time. To qualify for the Endowment match please return this form to CLS soon!

We want to share with you the importance of leaving a legacy with Christian Legal Society today. Please let us know you are interested in learning more by emailing us at legacy@clsnet.org
