Gifts From Your Will or Trust: The Details

Is this option right for you?

A gift from your will or trust is a good choice for you if:

  • you want to help ensure future viability and strength for your favorite charity or charities.
  • long-term planning is more important to you than an immediate income tax deduction.
  • you want the flexibility of a gift commitment that doesn't affect your current cash flow.

Your bequest to support our mission should be planned thoughtfully. Many good planning techniques are available, and you should choose the type of bequest that best suits your personal objectives.

For example, your bequest can be a stated dollar amount, or you can bequeath specific property to your favorite charity(ies). Some donors prefer to bequeath a certain percentage of the remainder of their estate — the amount that remains after paying all debts, costs, and other prior legacies.

Whichever form you prefer, you can direct that your bequest be used for the greatest needs of the organization or for a specific purpose you designate.
