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.

Hi, My name is SFC Salvaggio. I’ve been an active duty soldier for thirteen years, and recently returned from my fifth deployment in late Oct from Iraq. I would Love to surprise my wife and kids with a trip to Orlando during our 12 yr old daughters spring break. My wife has been the glue holding our family together, for the past 15yrs she has been by my side supporting me along the way. I have missed countless Birthdays,Anniversary and Holidays. I would love to give them a once in a lifetime trip to Orlando to show my appreciation for their unconditional love and support throughout my military career and I couldn’t do this without them by my side.

Family of 6 Disney World Wish
My name is SPC Andrew Boktor. I have been in the Army National Guard since high school and this September will make 9 years total. I was on a 15 month deployment because my return date continued to get delayed due to COVID 19. This was my first deployment and it was one of the hardest yet rewarding things to do in my life. I missed holidays, special occasions and the passing of my grandmother and uncle. It is a honor to serve our great country. However, I could not have done that without my amazing support system back home. My wife, mother, father, brother & sister-in law, all made me stronger during the deployment. My wife’s family took me on my first Disney trip 9 years ago and we all enjoyed the extraordinary time together. My father in law has recently been diagnosed with a debilitating disease called Inclusion Body Myositis. His time of being ambulatory may come to an end sooner than we all would like. I just want to be able to give back to my family as much as they have given to me. This is the first time I have been away from my wife (we went to middle school, high school, and college together) and it took a stressful toll on both of us. She is my rock. I just want to show my appreciation for my family by taking them on a trip to Disney World in Orlando, FL. I am asking for 4 day tickets for 6 members of my family. Their strength and prayers helped bring me home safe. With all the negativity going on during a pandemic and deployment, my family deserves some magic and joy. We are truly humbled and thankful to be considered for this wish fulfillment. Thank you VETTIX for all you do!

Discovery Cove Orlando - Signature Dolphin Swim Package + 2 parks for my family
I love my family! I have been deployed 6 months so far. This deployment has been hard, the first deployment for our two youngest boys. My previous deployment was when their next older sister was just a baby. Our oldest son is away at college, and our second oldest, our daughter Madyson, died in a car accident 6 years ago. Looking forward to reconnecting to my wife and kids, and sharing an adventure with them. I would like to take my family for a day at Discovery Cove swimming with the dolphins. I would take my wife and the 4 youngest kids. 6 tickets in total. We would like to get the SIGNATURE DOLPHIN SWIM PACKAGE + 2 PARKS option. We would like to go over Christmas break, December 13th, 2021.

1st Disney World Trip!
Hi! My name is TSgt Amy Christensen and I'm active duty Air Force with 10 years in. I'm currently on my first deployment. My husband, Cameron, is at home with our two children (ages 2 and 4). He's working full time and taking care of the kids by himself. This is my first time being separated from my children and I'm happy to say they are doing well but it has been difficult for them to understand why I left and why I can't just come home already. I want to plan our first ever family trip to the most magical place on earth! I think it would be good for our family to be able to relax and enjoy each others company after this long separation. I will have missed our wedding anniversary, my daughter's 2nd birthday, my husband's birthday, my birthday and my son's 5th birthday. Our trip to Disney World will be one big celebration! We are requesting three 4 day hoppers (our daughter won't require a ticket due to her age). Thank you so much for the support and consideration!

Disney World Family Vacation
Hello. My father, Capt. Carl E. Jackson, is MIA from Vietnam as of June 27, 1965. We never got a body back - only a few personal belongings. We were told several different stories about what might have happened to him and will never truth from fiction. Initially, we were told he was KIA. We later found out that there was an attempt to rescue him from a POW camp in October, 1966. Dad was a Captain at the time of his Vietnam incident. I am not sure how many deployments he was sent on as I was only 10 when the incident occurred. I do know that he was away from home a lot. My father was away much of my life and aside from the trips to visit grandparents, there was only one vacation that we went on. That is one of the dearest memories that I have of him. I would like to take my husband, children (daughter, son-in-law, and son), and my grandchildren (girl, boy, and one on the way) to Disney World so that we all can have our own memories. I thank you for your consideration.

Disney World, Orlando Florida
My name is SMSgt Jason Walker and I have served in the Air Force for 27 years and counting. I recently got back from a deployment in Afghanistan. I have been deployed all across the world from South Korea, Djibouti, Iraq, Turkey, Saudi Arabia, Germany, and many more. My deployments have always put a great deal of stress on my wife, Gretchen, and two daughters, Simone and Saffron (18 & 12) and I haven’t been able to show them my appreciation for all they have done back here at home. I am hoping to take them on a much needed trip this summer to Disney World in Florida for some family time and a stress reliever. We’ve never taken a family vacation and this trip would mean the world to my family and I. Thank you for your consideration and God bless.
