Remember Equality NC in your Will, Trust, or Beneficiary Designation

You can make a meaningful and lasting impact on the fight for equality in the state we love, without having to give up crucial assets during your lifetime.

Since 1979, support from donors like you have made Equality NC the largest Southern advocacy organization fighting to securing equality for LGBTQ North Carolinians. We are proud of what the Equality NC community has accomplished – and we won’t stop until we’ve brought equality home for everyone across this great state, from Wilmington to Asheville.

A gift left to Equality NC in your will, trust or beneficiary designation is a way to ensure that as long as we need to, we can mobilize our communities on issues that matter most to you, including marriage equality, parental rights, inclusive anti-bullying policies, employment discrimination, hate violence, privacy rights, sexuality education, adoption, domestic partnerships, and HIV/AIDS.

How It Works

A planned gift to Equality NC made in your will can take many forms:

  • You can designate a percentage of your estate.
  • You can designate a specific sum of money.
  • You can leave an asset, such as real estate, securities or other property.
  • You can leave the remainder of your estate after other beneficiaries receive the portions you designate.
  • You can make Equality NC the contingent beneficiary of your estate if your spouse/partner or other beneficiaries pass away before you.
  • You can also create a charitable trust


  • Your name listed on the Equality NC website event program, and annual report
  • Personal liaison assigned to you to update you on the work you’re supporting through Equality NC and respond to any of your questions
  • Inspire lasting change to advance equal rights and justice for lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender (LGBTQ) North Carolinians
  • Have peace of mind knowing that your intentions have been formally noted in your estate plans
