Bequests are one of the simplest and most effective ways to provide for Pubic Justice’s future. You may wish to leave Public Justice:

  • Specific Bequests: A stated dollar amount or a specific asset, such as securities or other marketable property
  • Residual Bequests: A percentage of your residual estate (what remains after debts, expenses, taxes, and specific bequests have been paid)

Washington, DC 20036
Tax ID #: 59-1730478
Nonprofit Status: 501(c)(3) not-for-profit corporation established in Washington, DC in 1982.
