COVID-19: How We’re Responding

What You Can Do

Hugo Hoogenboom, a leader of EngenderHealth from 1981-1995, has passed away. We honor Hugo’s legacy by continuing to work for a world in which everyone has access to the info & services needed to make their own reproductive health choices.

Why are sexual and reproductive health services not 'essential services' during the Corona virus pandemic? Covid 19 responses must include women's reproductive health needs. https://www.thelancet.com/journals/lancet/article/PIIS0140-6736(20)31679-2/fulltext

Accessing #familyplanning services is critical in #COVID19 response!

A6) We must value ALL the work women do. The EquityTool by @Metrics4mgmt can be included as part of routine data collection on #COVID19 response; we must also measure the proportion of women out of paid workforce, the dependency ratio & educational status. #GenderData #DevexFOCUS https://twitter.com/devex/status/1288451736332574721

A3) Collecting #VAW data amid #COVID19 is difficult due to risk to women seeking help; lockdowns hindering movement to safe spaces; gaps in training for service providers; & ongoing gaps in data systems. We must address #VAW and #GBV despite the pandemic. #GenderData #DevexFocus https://twitter.com/devex/status/1288447944916639746

A5) National stats offices should ensure that collected data is not only gender disaggregated but also informed by age disaggregation & they should capture how national governments' #COVID19 response efforts are benefiting women & other vulnerable groups. #GenderData #DevexFocus

A4) The EquityTool developed by @Metrics4mgmt provides important estimates of wealth quintiles, while the Washington Group Short Set of Disability Questions provides an opportunity to assess the extent to which #COVID19 is affecting those w/ disabilities. #GenderData #DevexFocus

Plan Your Legacy

Remembering EngenderHealth in your will, trust, retirement plan or other long-range financial arrangement is a powerful commitment to carry on our mission. It also gives you the satisfaction of knowing that your support for EngenderHealth will continue well into the future.

Please help further EngenderHealth’s legacy of more than 70 years of service with a legacy of your own.

Gift Plan How it Works Benefits
Will Name EngenderHealth as a beneficiary of your will or trust. You leave a percentage of your estate, a specific amount, or a specific property. You can also leave the remainder of your estate once distribution of specific bequests and other obligations have been made. Assets are transferred to EngenderHealth upon death; potential estate tax savings for your heirs.
Retirement Plan Name EngenderHealth as a beneficiary on your IRA or qualified retirement plan beneficiary designation form for a percentage of what remains in your retirement plan when the plan ends. Giving through your retirement account is one of the most tax-wise ways to give. Your retirement assets, an IRA or other retirement account, if left to your family (other than a spouse), will be subject to income tax in addition to any applicable estate tax. With a gift to Engenderhealth, 100 percent of the funds are available for its charitable purposes.
IRA Charitable Rollover – You must be 70 ½ years old or older at the time of the gift ­
– Gifts must go directly from your IRA to EngenderHealth ­
– Gifts must come from a traditional IRA or Roth IRA account
– Gifts cannot exceed $100,000 per donor
– Gifts can satisfy your required minimum distribution without increasing your income taxes
– You will not pay taxes on your IRA withdrawal when given to EngenderHealth
Life Insurance Name EngenderHealth as a beneficiary of a new or existing life insurance policy. You can also give your paid-up policy to EngenderHealth. Future support at little cost to you and tax savings for your heirs.
Charitable Gift Annuity Your money is reinvested by EngenderHealth with an agreement to provide annuity payments. Fixed payments for life and an immediate charitable tax deduction.
Charitable Remainder Trust Your assets are irrevocably placed in trust. Beneficiaries receive income for life or for the term of the trust. Remaining assets are given to EngenderHealth.
