For those of you thinking of the long game, you can name CounterPunch as a beneficiary of your life insurance policy or retirement account. To support the future of CounterPunch through a beneficiary gift, you can fill out a beneficiary designation form from your plan provider or an administrator. See our organizational information at the bottom of this letter for details.

One of the simplest ways to contribute from a retirement account is to name CounterPunch as a beneficiary for part or all of what remains in your retirement account when you no longer need it. This includes your individual retirement accounts (IRAs), Keogh plans, 401(k) plans, 403(b) plans and other qualified pension plans. The proceeds of these plans will be distributed outside probate and are thus entirely free from income and federal estate tax.

Tell us about your plans or request more information by emailing us at becky.counterpunch@icloud.com

Many companies offer matching gift programs for their employees. If your company does have such a program, please register your donation to us with them so they can match it. See our organizational information below.

You can donate in honor of a special occasion or in memory of a loved one. We can send a notice to the recipient of your choice to let them know that you have chosen to honor them or a loved one with a donation to CounterPunch.  Donate here and leave a comment on the checkout form to “make this donation in honor of someone.”  If you include their email address we’ll make sure to let the honoree know.

Considering asking your friends and family to donate to CounterPunch in lieu of receiving gifts for your special occasion. Ask them to donate to CounterPunch here and leave in a note in the comments field when they checkout.
