Kimberly Martin Begg, Esq., Vice President and General Counsel
Kimberly Martin Begg is Vice President and General Counsel of Young America's Foundation. She oversees the Foundation's legal and planned giving departments.
Kimberly is concerned with all legal issues affecting Young America’s Foundation’s headquarters, the Reagan Ranch and Reagan Ranch Center, and our activities throughout the country. She helps Young America’s Foundation stay on course to operate in all areas to reach more young people to restore and preserve America's freedom. In this capacity, Kimberly works with Young America’s Foundation’s team and outside counsel to review communications and contracts, help students stand up for their rights on campuses, pursue trademarks, and meet the Foundation's general legal obligations, without forfeiting our rights in a hostile regulatory environment.
Kimberly also drafts letters of intent for supporters making outright gifts and bequests.
When supporters who include Young America’s Foundation in their estate plans pass away, it is Kimberly’s responsibility to ensure their intent is honored.
As the director of planned giving, Kimberly helps supporters make estate gifts to pass on their ideas and define their legacy on their terms. Supporters and their legal and financial advisors who are interested in learning more about legacy giving should contact Kimberly at 800-USA-1776 or firstname.lastname@example.org to receive a complimentary, no-obligation copy of Investing in the Future: Estate Planning Guide to Strengthen the Conservative Movement.
As a student at Rutgers University, Kimberly attended a Young America’s Foundation regional conference in Connecticut in 1996, and the National Conservative Student Conference in Washington, D.C. in 1997. With Young America’s Foundation’s help, she spread conservative ideas on her campus by hosting Suzanne Fields to speak about the radical agenda of the new feminism movement. Prior to joining Young America’s Foundation, Kimberly served as Director of Development for Frontiers of Freedom, Assistant Director of Legislation and Communications for the American Tort Reform Association, and Marketing and Development Coordinator for the Institute for Justice.
