Make a Bequest to the IAS

The Institute for Anarchist Studies relies on financial support from you to do its work. We are a largely volunteer-run organization—proof that a small number of dedicated individuals can produce inspiring results! We aim to further anarchist analysis and to spread the influence of anti-authoritarian ideas and praxis through reflection, dialogue, and education. Our work takes many forms, including:

  • Grants for radical writers & translators
  • Perspectives on Anarchist Theory journal (both online and in print)
  • Anarchist Interventions and other book series through AK Press
  • The Mutual Aid Speakers Bureau
  • Sponsorship of educational events
  • And more!

By including the Institute for Anarchist Studies in your will, you can memorialize your commitment to liberatory struggles and ensure that our shared vision of a free society carries on.
A bequest to the IAS is easy to arrange and can be made by including the following words in your will:

I give to Institute for Anarchist Studies (Federal Tax ID #81-3419050), a 501©(3) nonprofit organization with its principal mailing address at PO Box 90454, Portland, OR 97290, ___% of my estate [or: the sum of $___ ] to be used in such a manner as the Board of Directors of the Institute for Anarchist Studies shall, in its sole discretion, determine.

Any type of cash, securities, personal property, or real estate can be given through a bequest. The IAS can also be named beneficiary of assets that often pass outside a will, such as IRAs, pension plans, life insurance, or assets held in a trust or annuity. To do so, contact the relevant institution and complete the appropriate beneficiary designation form.
