Invest in EPIC

EPIC depends on the kindness of our donors who enable us to have a deep impact on the lives of Iraqi youth through our programming in Iraq, informing public policy, and enhancing understanding of Iraq’s story. Through your generosity, our programs, research, and advocacy contribute to making Iraq safe and prosperous again by empowering youth for peace.

As a registered 501(c)3 non-profit organization, EPIC can receive your investment in our work in a variety of ways and will work with you to designate your gift to a specific program if you choose. Many of our donors give in memory or honor of a loved one who we are pleased to acknowledge. If you have any questions or concerns as you consider your investment options, please feel free to contact EPIC’s Executive Director Erik Gustafson any time via email at ekg [at] or by phone at (202) 747-6454.

Gifts of appreciated securities

Often the most economical way to give is through the donation of appreciated securities — stocks, bonds, and mutual funds held by you for more than one year. Gifts of appreciated securities often allow a donor to receive an income tax deduction for charitable giving, and often have the added benefit of relieving donors of having to claim capital gains. Donors who wish to donate appreciated securities should consult a tax professional for the most up-to-date information.

Gifts of real estate

EPIC is pleased to receive gifts of real estate and will work with donors and their advisors on how to best make the transaction. If you are considering a gift of real estate, please contact Erik Gustafson, EPIC’s Executive Director at any time: ekg [ at]

Leave a legacy of peacebuilding

Perpetuate your commitment to empowering youth for peace in Iraq by including EPIC in your estate planning. Any gift, however large or small, helps to express your values and advances our mission. For more information on including EPIC in your estate plans or life insurance policy, or to inform us that EPIC is already mentioned in your will, please contact Erik Gustafson, EPIC’s Executive Director at any time: ekg [at]

As you consider your options for investing in Iraq’s future, we encourage you to consult with your accountant, tax advisor, or attorney to determine the best method of giving to EPIC.

We cannot succeed in our work without you, and thank you for your generosity!
