Reasons to donate to the Press Club

Your support extends the outreach and educational components of the Press Club Scholarship programs. Thank you for helping to inspire future generations by preserving the legacies of the men and women who built our industry.

Here is how to give!

Wills and bequests are for everyone. They are the simplest, most effective and common way to plan for the future and to ensure that your ideals and priorities are reflected in the distribution of your assets.

No matter whether your estate is large or small, it is just good common sense to have a will. Without a will, the laws of the state of Missouri will determine how your assets are divided. So, even if there is a natural tendency to procrastinate in this area, writing a will is one of the most significant and self-expressive actions a person can take.

If our scholarship fund and making a difference in the lives of our communicators of the future is important in your life, you can ensure this ongoing program by making a bequest to Press Club in your will. The terms of the bequest may specify a dollar amount or a percentage of the residuary estate. The bequest can take the form of particular assets such as real estate, art or stocks, or it can be set up as a trust that will support both your individual beneficiaries and Press Club.

The language required for a bequest to Press Club is: "I give, devise and bequeath to The Press Club of Metropolitan St. Louis Foundation, a not-for--profit organization, the sum of $----; ----% or all of my residuary estate. If you already have a will, you can add a codicil designating Press Club as a beneficiary.
