Planned Giving

Make a long-term impact with planned giving

High-speed rail is a long-term investment in our nation's future. The Midwest High Speed Rail Association is and will be on the front lines for years to come, advocating for strategic investments to bring high-speed rail to the Midwest. You can ensure that our voices will continue to be heard by designating a gift from your estate.

An estate gift is a powerful tool to advance our mission and work.

There are several easy and popular ways to make a estate gift:

  • adding the Midwest High Speed Rail Association to your will or living trust
  • directing a percentage of your retirement account or life insurance policy to support the Association (beneficiary designation forms are easy to use, do not require the help of an attorney and allow great flexibility should circumstances change down the road)

Sample bequest language

"I give to the Midwest High Speed Rail Association, an Illinois corporation, Chicago, Illinois, the sum of $________ ( or ______  percentage of my estate) to be used by the Association for its unrestricted purposes."
