“I’m so happy to return even a small portion of what NCLC has given to me. The satisfaction of a good career, doing good work, is and has been so rewarding. I doubt I could have done it without NCLC’s help. I’m so pleased to have such an easy way to share.”

“I included NCLC in my estate plan for the same reason that I make multiyear pledges: to make a commitment into the future. I am a great believer in NCLC’s mission of advocacy on behalf of low-income consumers. I want NCLC to carry on its good work knowing there’s a safety net if revenues fall.”

“Giving is as much a part of my daily life as breathing, so donating to NCLC is an extension of who I am and integral to how I interact with the world. For those who have felt disposed to donate in the past but have hesitated to do so, I would say simply: Make giving a priority. In no time at all you will realize how giving impacts not only NCLC as an organization, but also your own perspective and the greater world in which we all live.”
