Ways To Provide Gifts By Will
There are many ways qualify for The Heritage Society by including the NRA, NRA-ILA, or any of our three 501(c)(3) tax-exempt affiliates in your will. The most common methods are:
Since local laws differ, a professional advisor should be contacted for the preparation of all wills and trusts.
- General Bequest
The most familiar type of bequest; it specifies that we will receive a specific amount.
- Percentage Bequest
An excellent alternative to the general bequest. It states that we will receive a certain pre-determined percentage of your estate, and assures that inflation will not reduce the true value of the bequest you intended for our benefit.
- Specific Bequest
You can direct that particular property be transferred to us, such as a certain piece of real estate, stock from a specific company or an item of personal property, such as a firearm.
- Residuary Bequest
Directs that we receive either everything remaining in your estate or a designated percentage of your estate after all costs and bequests are satisfied.
- Contingent Bequest
Is contingent upon some event. You might make a primary bequest for a relative, with the contingency that if that relative is not living at the time of your death, the bequest will pass to the NRA or one of its tax-exempt affiliates.

What Is The Heritage Society?
The Heritage Society is made up of men and women who believe strongly enough in the purposes of the NRA to make a financial commitment to its future. Heritage Society membership is awarded to anyone who has made a planned gift to the NRA, NRA-ILA, or any of the NRA's tax-exempt affiliates.
