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.

Disney World park hopper passes
My husbands name is 2nd LT Randall Knauss. He would love to take his family to Disney World. After going to school for 2 years to green to gold my husband went to a 10 month school. He was home 6 weeks before he deployed to Korea. Once returning from Korea, he was home 6 months before he deployed to Europe after the war in Ukraine started. We would love to spend time together as a family relaxing after so much time apart.

Disneyland with family
Hi! My name is Technical Sergeant Teddrick Thibodeaux, Aircrew Flight Equipment Specialist. I entered the United States Air Force in 2011 and currently stationed overseas. I am currently on my 2nd deployment to a specialized base in an Afghanistan province. I have been deployed for 3 months now, working 14-hour days, no downtime and constantly on the move to sustain aircrew equipment by ensuring safety measures are in place for the individuals that fly those aircrafts, it’s a bittersweet feeling to know that I directly affect the mission and save lives daily. This deployment in particular has put a great deal of stress on my family. I am the father of two beautiful kids (Lilah (8) and Teddrick Jr (4)) and husband to my amazing wife Daisha. I want to let my wife and kids know how much I appreciate them for their sacrifices, tremendous support and love I have received from them. Every day that I’m not with them, it brings a sense of sadness that I’m missing their smiles, excitement from coming home from school, chances to watch little league and much more. I want to extend my gratitude to my family with this trip, not just for missing family time due to these deployments but for the last 12 years. I am requesting four, 4-day park hopper tickets to Disneyland, in California. This will be our 1st family vacation in 4 years. What we have been through as a family, it is very much needed! I want to personally thank Vettix and all the contributors in advance for making my kids dream come true! God Bless America!

Walt Disney World
Currently deployed to the Middle East, and was involuntarily extended for up to an additional 6 months, totaling around 18 months away. I have three sons and a fiancee that I wish to take away on a magical Disney World Vacation. This has always been a dream of my family to do, and would be incredible if we could accomplish this, using the opportunity to re-connect after this deployment. We wouldn't require transportation, only park access and hotel (if any sort of meal vouchers are available, that would be amazing).

Family vacation to Disney World
My name is Semeli Toilolo and I am 41 years old. I was born and raised in American Samoa in the village of Vailoa (vuh-ee-lo-ah). I met my high school sweetheart, Margaret Toilolo and we got married in 1998. We have 4 boys and one girl, one grandson and another grandchild on the way. I joined the U.S Army in 2000 as an Infantryman and I was medically retired in 2015. I am a Army Veteran who served for 15 years. Four of those years and three months was the time I deployed away from my family to Iraq. We are now settled in Texas, and my two older boys are now serving in the Army, one stationing in Ft. Lewis and the other in Fort Bragg. I am a stay at home dad and grandpa, trying to make up for the times I have lost with my family. In 2007, when we were stationed in Fort Lewis, Wa, I was deployed with to Iraq with 4-9 Infantry, 2nd Infantry Division to Baquoba, Dyala Province. In one of our dismounted patrols in a crowded market street, a female suicide bomber walked in our formation and blew herself up, and wounded my whole squad, including myself. We were air MEDEVAC out to the nearest CASH in another base in Iraq called LSA Anaconda. They were able to operate and take some of the shrapnel out but left some inside my arm. I was then doing physical therapy and recovery and 6 months later I was deployed with the 1st CAV Division 1-8 CAV, 2nd Brigade, to Iraq 2009-2009, and 2011-2011. In 2014, I was diagnosed with severe PTSD and the ARMY Medboarded me out, after 25 years of service. I had been through several inpatient treatments for PTSD like PRRP, and also had been involved in small groups and wounded warrior peer support group. My injuries are both physical and mental, and it is affecting my family. My kids don’t even come to me and they only call and text their mom. I feel as if I am the bad guy in our house and nobody seems to understand me. So we are taking it one day at a time, trying to keep everything together. So I enrolled online to take some courses and I have been reading my Bible, trying to stay close to God and I meditate through prayer. I feel that is helping me to change my way of thinking and take away anxiety and depression. My plan for the future is to stay healthy and be a counselor for those veterans who are going through the same problem as me. I also plan to graduate from GCU with a BA in Christian Studies, which I am currently taking. Right now, my mother-in-law, she is 76 years old is staying with us, we are taking care of her, and my daughter and her son, my two boys and my little dog. My oldest son is deployed to Iraq. My wife doesn’t work, she is my caregiver. I also plan to graduate with my BA in Christian Studies from GCU online and use that degree to help someone battling PTSD or similar, despite if they are veterans or civilians. We have always wanted to go to Disney World but financially we can’t. If this wish comes true this will be our first family outing vacation ever. I think it would help me to get out of the house and reconnect with my family in that way. It would be a dream come true especially for my kids, but a healing therapeutic retreat for me and my wife as well. Thank you and God bless.

Disney World Tickets for Post Deployment Family Vacation
Hi Everyone I am 1SG Donald Spring. I have been in the Virginia Army National Guard for 19 years. Over those years, I have served in 5 active duty overseas deployments to include Afghanistan, Iraq (twice), Jordan and now currently serving in the Horn of Africa for a year. My wife is currently raising our two children, Michael (7) and Aurora (19 Months), and our 3 dogs at our home in Virginia. This deployment has been especially hard on my son as I have missed his birthday, holidays, and his baseball seasons. He loves the Magic of Disney and of course our daughter will as well because she is a Princess after all!I am hoping to take my family to Disney World in November to celebrate my homecoming, my sons 8th birthday and a belated 2nd birthday for my daughter! I would like to request 3 - 5 Day Salute Park Hopper Plus with Genie Tickets, Aurora is still too young to require a ticket.

Disney World Family Vacation
My name is Sgt John Real. I am active duty Air Force going on 10 years of service. I am hoping to take my wife and my son to Disney World when I return from my short tour. My son, Luka, just turned 2 in December 2021. When he was 10 months old, I deployed to Iraq. I came home for a short time, only to leave when he was 21 months for my short tour. I have never got to spend a Halloween, Thanksgiving, Christmas, or birthday with him. I would love to take him to Disney for his next birthday shortly after I return. My wife has done such a great job taking care of him and our home while I have been gone. Taking my family to Disney would be the perfect opportunity for our family to spend much needed time together. This would be both mine and my son’s first trip to Disney World and this would be the perfect chance for us to bond since I have been away from him for half of his life. We thank everyone who can help make this dream come true for us.
