Donate Using Last Will And Testament - Leave A Legacy


Charitable Bequests

A charitable bequest is simply a distribution from your estate to a charitable organization through your last will and testament. There are different kinds of bequests. For each, you must use very specific language to indicate the precise direction of your assets, and to successfully carry out your final wishes. In any charitable bequest, be sure to name the recipient accurately. A bequest to The Cancer Society might go to national headquarters, when you meant it to go to the affiliate in your community.

Do you have an estate?

Your estate is the sum of your assets, including property you own, insurance policies, retirement accounts, cash on hand, etc. Wealthy people may have very large estates, but even people who aren't wealthy often have the resources to make a charitable bequest. If every adult in America made a will and included a bequest of just $100, billions of dollars would flow to charitable causes every year.

Below, we have listed some of the more common kinds of bequests, and some bequest language. We always recommend that you carefully review the terms of your will with a professional trained in handling trusts and estates.

General Bequests are legacies left to certain people or causes that come from the general value of the estate, and are made by designating a specific dollar amount, a particular asset or a fixed percentage of your estate to the cause of your choice.

General bequest language:
"I give, devise, and bequeath to VETERAN TICKETS FOUNDATION, the sum of $________(or a description of the specific asset), for the benefit of VETERAN TICKETS FOUNDATION and its general purposes."

Specific Bequests are made when a particular item or property is bequeathed for a designated purpose. (i.e., instruments bequeathed to the local school district for use in music education; dollar funds to be used in the operation of a school or church.)

Specific bequest language:
"I give, devise, and bequeath to VETERAN TICKETS FOUNDATION, the sum of $_______ (or a description of a specific asset), for the benefit of VETERAN TICKETS FOUNDATION to be used for the following purpose: FULFILL HERO'S WISHES. If at any time in the judgment of the trustees of VETERAN TICKETS FOUNDATION it is impossible or impracticable to carry out exactly the designated purpose, they shall determine an alternative purpose closest to the designated purpose."

Residuary Bequests are made when you intend to leave the residue portion of your assets after other terms of the will have been satisfied.

Residuary bequest language:
"All the rest, residue, and remainder of my estate, both real and personal, I give to VETERAN TICKETS FOUNDATION, for its general purposes."

Contingency Bequests allow you to leave a portion of your estate to a particular charity if your named beneficiary does not survive you.

Contingency bequest language:
"I devise and bequeath the residue of the property, real and personal and wherever situated, owned by me at my death, to (name of beneficiary), if (she/he) survives me. If (name of beneficiary) does not survive me, I devise and bequeath my residuary estate to VETERAN TICKETS FOUNDATION, for its general purposes."

Without a will, there is no mechanism in place to make a bequest, so here are the steps you should take to make sure your wishes are granted.

  • Make a list of organizations or causes that you would like to support.
  • Make a detailed list of your assets (financial, real estate, vehicles, jewelry, collectibles, musical instruments, etc.)
  • Set up an appointment with your financial analyst or attorney, or planned giving officer at the organization you intend to support. These professionals will help sensitively guide you through the process.

Post Deployment Family trip to Walt Disney World
My name is SGT Aaron Keehn. I have a beautiful family. An amazing wife and beautiful 4 yr old little girl named Lily Rose. I am presently completing a 9 month deployment over seas, which resulted in me missing out on holiday and family events, including my daughter's 4th birthday. I would love to take my wife and daughter to Walt Disney World upon return from deployment. This is my second deployment, and I can't think of a better way to make up for lost memories, than building new ones at Walt Disney World. I would like to make a Hero’s Wish to request (3) Disney World 5-day park hopper tickets for my family.

Hamilton on Broadway
My name is Thomas Hopkins. I am a Master Sergeant in the United States Air Force. As I prepare to return home from a six month deployment, I'd love the opportunity to treat my family to a performance of the Broadway musical, Hamilton. My devoted wife, my selfless mother, who lives with us, and our two daughters, ages 15 and 12, have sacrificed a lot over the course of my 19-year military career. My girls have wanted to see Hamilton since the production opened in 2015. Unfortunately, tickets are in high demand, and difficult to obtain. My wife, mother, and daughters are my heroes, and although I can't make up for all the missed holidays, birthdays, and special occasions, I humbly request this opportunity to show my appreciation for all they have endured in service to our great nation. My Heroes Wish is for five theater tickets, to accommodate all the members of my family, living in my household; my wife, mother, two daughters, and myself. I will be home and available by February 8, 2019, and will be grateful for any performance date thereafter.

Post Deployment Disney World Trip - 4 Day Hopper Pass
My name is SGT Michael J. Barton III. I got married to the love of my life and we had our son a year ago. I’ve been deployed for almost all of our marriage so far. Shortly after getting married we moved to Ft. Campbell where i was quickly put on orders to deploy to Afghanistan for 9 months. My wife and I never got an opportunity to go on our honeymoon and this trip to Disney World would be the best trip to reconnect and create new memories at a place where we have never gone before. I do not return until March and I would love to show my wife how much I appreciate her holding down the house during our first deployment together as a family.

PHOENIX Suns Courtside experience
My name Is Sgt. Zac Rand of the United States Army. In November of 2011 my convoy was struck by an IED causing myself and another soldier to be MED-EVACED on site. I suffered a Traumatic Brain injury that has lead to other issues such as anxiety, sporadic migraines, PTSD etc. For the longest time especially after being separated from the Army, I felt completely lost.. that is until I turned to helping others with disabilities. In early 2017 I met a gentleman by the name of Gabriel Gadson, Gabriel suffers from Cerebral Palsy, but like myself he does not let any sort of disability stop him. We both share the common love and passion for basketball and it would be my ultimate dream come true to be able to go to a game and share an awesome experience. It has been my dream since a little kid to watch the Phoenix Suns play court side against my all time favorite team the CHICAGO BULLS! Thank you to each and everyone of you who take the time out of your day to review my wish. Thank you Vet Tix and all those with kind hearts that take the time to review my wish. God bless.

Louder Than Life Concert Weekend
My name is SSG Tanner Kuth. I would love to attend the Louder than life music festival in September 28-30 with my fiance and my kids. We would be driving up from Georgia and camping for the event. I was injured in an IED blast in Afghanistan in 2009 breaking my neck, back, butt, and both feet and legs. Ultimately I lost my left leg below the knee and went 70% blind in my right eye.
