A Charitable Bequest in Your Will

Leaving a bequest in your will or living trust is one of the most popular choices due to its simplicity, flexibility, versatility and tax benefits.

  • Simple bequest language can be added and you are done.
  • As the gift isn't until after your lifetime, you can alter it at any time if needed.
  • Whether an exact amount or percentage of your estate is preferential, both are easily accomodated.
  • If your estate is subject to estate tax, the full value of your gift is tax-deductible.
