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.
last will and testimate

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.

Look at the license plate of the car parked next to you at work. You may find the individual is a Purple Heart recipient or simply a Veteran of the Armed Forces.

Stop by a local recruiting station, nursing home, VFW, or American Legion and simply say "Thanks".

Atlanta Falcons game with my family
My name is Nick. I am currently on my 2nd deployment and have been away from my family for 8 months as of me writing this. I am looking to take my family to a Steelers game this fall. My family are die hard Steelers fans, however making it an NFL game has been out of our grasp. These past few years have been hard on my wife and boys as I have been away a lot. During this deployment we had a high-risk pregnancy and we were blessed with a healthy and beautiful 5lb baby girl. With all the chaos recently, I know my family would love to be able to go see the team they love at an actual game. I know it will be a memory the boys will never forget. We're hoping for 4 tickets to the Steelers/Falcons game playing in Atlanta. Thank you very much to all those who donate to this cause and make wishes like this possible for my family.

*Universal Orlando Family Vacation*
Hi! My name is Danny. I just got back home from a deployment to Kuwait, and like many others struggled with being away from my family and missing so much of what they were doing. I have a wife and three daughters who are 15, 12 and 9. Missing things like the holidays, them starting high school, middle school and a new elementary and all of their sporting events was not easy at all. My wife did an amazing job taking care of everything while I was gone, but now I am so glad to be home and a part of everything again. We don’t ever take actual family vacations because we really only travel for sports. So this summer while we are in Orlando for futsal, I would love to take my family to Universal. I would really love to get a universal military freedom pass for each of us so we can in and out of the two parks because we won’t be able to go and spend an entire day there. This would mean so much to me to be able to surprise my wife and girls with this one our trip, so that is why I am hoping to get 5 universal military freedom passes.

Family trip to see Harry Potter on Broadway in NYC
My name is Luis. This month I completed 10 years in the US Army Reserve and just returned from an overseas deployment (9 months) which came short notice as my orders were cut only 1 month prior to deployment. I missed all except one birthday and missed my anniversary as well. My wife is an amazing woman who helped our family successfully endure the impact of this last-minute deployment. She managed four boys and two active German Shepherds, so it was not an easy task for her! I am very grateful that we were able to make it through the challenges we experienced. That is why I would love to take my family to NYC to see "Harry Potter and The Cursed Child" on Broadway. My kids love music and Harry Potter and I know this will help inspire a greater appreciation for music and the arts. We would also take advantage of being in NYC to see the World Trade Center Memorial. Your kind consideration is greatly appreciated! We will be grateful for anything that may be provided. Thank you!

Family trip to Orlando Disney
Hi, my name is Richie. I'm a 19 D Cav Scout in the U.S. Army. I'm active duty and have been in the Army for 10.5 years. I'm currently serving on my 2nd deployment. In the picture, you see my family and I moments before I left for deployment. Me and my wife have 3 handsome boys ages 13,12 and 5. I will return back in a few weeks and would love to surprise my family with a vacation to Disney World. I would really be grateful for my "Hero's Wish" to be able to get five (3-day Park Hopper) tickets to make some great memories with my wife and children.

Post Deployment Trip to Disney World
Hello, my name is Nick. I am a 17 year Army Soldier, husband, and father to two wonderful children. I am currently deployed to the Middle East. While this is my third deployment for the military, this is my first as a Dad. Back home, I live the somewhat cliche tale of a full-time Sheriff Deputy married to an elementary school teacher. My wife and I both have a passion for serving others, but this trip is far different with my wife taking on so much of the burden. By the time all is done and I am finally home, my family will have been apart for over 13 months out of a 16 month period. I would like nothing more than to take my 8 year old and 5 year old for a trip to Disney World to celebrate finally being a family again and to thank them for letting their Dad go help others while I could. Thank you for your consideration.
