Mara Keisling Legacy SocietyThose who know Mara Keisling, know her not only for her remarkable policy acumen, but also for her extraordinary wit and sense of humor. She would often joke that she got this job because she had the top qualification needed—she was available.

And thank goodness she was! Today, NCTE has grown into a political powerhouse who has forged strong relationships with policy makers at all levels of government including Presidents, members of Congress, Governors, and administrative agencies.

One of the most powerful ways to ensure that effective policy change can be carried out for generations to come, regardless of who holds political office, is to support the National Center for Transgender Equality through a gift in your will. It’s an incredible way to invest in the future of transgender equality, without any cost to you today.

Become a part of our perpetual family today by making a planned gift and joining the Mara Keisling Legacy Society!


To help get you started, NCTE has partnered with FreeWill!

FreeWill is a free, online resource that guides you through the process of writing your will or trust in 20 minutes or less, and, if you feel moved to do so, include a gift to the National Center for Transgender Equality.
