For over 40 years, New York Women in Film & Television, Inc., has provided a supportive community dedicated to helping women attain the highest levels of achievement in film, television and digital media. Our work continues as women struggle to gain more equality in the field. Your generous support of NYWIFT in your estate plans provides us with the ability to help women for many generations to come.
What Is a Legacy Gift?
A gift that allows you to support NYWIFT in your estate plans. In many cases, a legacy gift might also reduce the tax burden placed on your beneficiaries. Your professional advisors can help you determine what type of legacy gift is right for you.
Your legacy gift can be any portion of your estate assets, ensuring that both NYWIFT and your beneficiaries will benefit from your generosity. Even the most modest gift will allow us to support generations of women filmmakers and film professionals to come.
Your gift can take many forms:
You can start by talking to a NYWIFT representative and consulting with your professional advisors. We are always available to answer general questions about your bequest or any other gifts. Please call Terry Lawler, Executive Director, at 212-679-0870 or email firstname.lastname@example.org. We will get back to you right away.
If you are leaving NYWIFT a bequest, your attorney can help you draft the appropriate language in your will. Make sure to use our full legal name, New York Women in Film & Television, Inc., and federal tax ID number (132983705).
If you are donating all or part of your retirement assets or life insurance policy, New York Women in Film & Television, Inc., must be named as a beneficiary under your plan.
Those who include NYWIFT in their estate or retirement plans will be welcomed into our LightsCameraAction Society. Members of our LightsCameraAction Society will receive recognition in our Muse Awards journal (if so desired), an invitation to our annual LightsCameraAction Society event, as well as special invitations throughout the year.
Please let us know if you have made a gift so that we may thank you for your generosity and
welcome you to the LightsCameraAction Society.
NYWIFT programs, screenings and events are supported, in part, by grants from New York City Department of Cultural Affairs in partnership with the City Council, and New York State Council on the Arts with the support of Governor Andrew Cuomo and the New York State Legislature.
