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.

Luke Combs Buckeye Country Superfest
My name is Joe Miller I joined the military in 2006 served six years in the Army as an infantryman. I joined the military because I was young and had a baby on the way and I had no idea how I was going to provide. I wasn’t all too patriotic then, but uncle Sam and I are best friends now. We play golf on the weekends haha! I was wounded in combat and I’m a Purple Heart recipient I lost the hearing in my left ear and a lot of hearing in my right ear I took shrapnel on my legs. I’m grateful to still have my limbs and eyesight. Last Year I made a promise to my wife that I would get her and the kids tickets to see her favorite artist in the world Luke Combs in Columbus on July 23, 2022. I promised I would get her close to the stage and recently I looked at the prices and I had knots in my stomach. We’ve never been to a concert before and I didn’t know how expensive it was. My wife has been my rock. She took care of me at my worst times and she took care of me at my best times. She is a mother to my kids and I couldn’t have asked for a better person in my life. She works so hard at everything she does and never does anything for herself. Knowing I can’t afford these tickets hurts my heart and I know that she’ll completely understand but I would still love to surprise her. This would be the best dream come true for me, and her. The kids will love it too. I have never asked anyone for anything but if there’s a chance I can help her wish come true (which is my wish) I'm going to try whatever I can. I’m a very humble person and very grateful. I’m grateful for what I have and I never complain about the things I don’t have. Thank you for reading this.

Family Trip to Disney World
Hello, my name is SFC Jeremy Clinton and I have been serving in the Army Reserves for the last 19 years and am currently on my 4th deployment to the Middle East. I expect to be home in spring 2022. Previously I served two tours in Iraq (2007-2008 and 2009-2010) and one tour in Afghanistan (most of 2015). My wife and I met in 2006, wed in 2013 and are blessed to share two beautiful daughters, ages 7 and 4. On the civilian side I am a local police officer for the past 9 years (7 if you don’t count the time I’ve spent deployed). I’m not normally one to ask for help, but after speaking with my wife, I decided to do so. Growing up, my family lived paycheck-to-paycheck and never took vacations because quite frankly, my parents didn’t have the money for such. Sometimes the electric got turned off or the water turned off for a week or two at a time. Just as any father does, I hope to be able to do more for my children and my wife than my parents were able to do for me and my 5 siblings. I have worked tirelessly for most of my life. I gained my first job two weeks prior to turning 14 at a fast food restaurant and have been employed ever since, only ever having worked a total of 3 jobs. This is in addition to my military service, which I enlisted at 17 years old while I was a junior in high school with my parents’ written consent. The military hasn’t always been easy and has slowed things for me on the civilian side at times due to multiple deployments. After graduating high school, I enrolled in community college in 2005 and began studying criminal justice. I was a fulltime student while working fulltime. Due to my back-to-back deployments to Iraq, it took me 6 years to earn a 2-year degree (Associates). I was able to get hired as a police officer 14 months later. From my short story, you can see my wife has been by my side from almost the beginning. She is truly an amazing woman that I believe only other veterans’ spouses can fully understand extent of the hardships and sacrifices she too has made in support of me, our family, community and country. I am extremely fortunate to have such a dedicated wife, terrific mother and strong role model for my children. With all of that said, my wife and I are in the process of planning a trip to Disney World in Orlando, FL. My wife went there as a child and it’ll be a first for my daughters and I. Due to their ages, we had hoped to take them last year (2020) but due to the COVID pandemic, that wasn’t possible and then this year (2021), I deployed again. So we are planning for an October/November 2022 timeframe, when Halloween or Christmas décor and activities are happening. My wife and I both feel we have to get our daughters to Disney World in 2022 due to their ages so they can experience “the magic” we’ve heard others talk about before it’s too late and that magic diminishes. We live in the northeast and so we are planning to fly to Orlando, or drive, depending on how the finances workout. All together, we are hoping our vacation can last 7 days with the budget we have. To alleviate some stress and make room in our budget, I am humbly requesting assistance with acquiring tickets to the Disney World parks. My wife and I would like to take our daughters to Magic Kingdom. Again, I don’t normally ask others for help but I’m swallowing my pride at this time in hopes that I can give my family the much needed vacation they both need and deserve without sacrificing the experiences due to financial constraints. This is really about them, not me. Any assistance is better than nothing so thank you for your time.

Universal studios CA for disabled veteran
My Name is Sgt. Kathleen Sarrica. I am a disabled veteran with 2 children and a husband. I deployed to Iraq in 2009-2010. I lost my first husband in Iraq and my nephew in Afghanistan. We live on a very fixed income and I’d like nothing more than to reward my family with a vacation to Universal studios. My family has suffered not only with my absence during deployment but with the aftermath of said deployment. I’m rated 100% and life has been so extremely hard for us in the past 9 years. I suffer PTSD, an anxiety disorder as well as being the victim of MST (military Sexual Trama). Seizures can come at anytime, often without warning. My family has suffered extensively with my health issues. It would be so wonderful to be able to give back and show my family how appreciative I am of them for sticking by my side. Universal Studios would be a great reward for my family for sticking with me through thick and thin. I would just like to give back to my family for always being there. They are my definition of real life heroes. I try everyday to be the best mom I can possibly be, but sometimes it gets the best of me. We’ve never been on vacation and I feel this would be a great way to show my kids that no matter what life throws at you family is always #1.
