FAQs About Making a Gift Through Your Will

What kinds of charitable gifts can I make through my will?
  • Specific Bequest: You designate a specific dollar amount or piece of property, such as real estate, stocks, bonds or works of art.
  • Residual Bequest: You donate all or a portion of your estate to the beneficiary after all your debts, taxes, expenses and other bequests have been paid.
  • Contingent Bequest: Your gift takes effect only if the primary intention cannot be met (e.g. if the primary and alternate beneficiaries do not survive the donor).
  • Deferred Bequest: Your gift takes effect after your loved ones no longer need the support of the income from your estate.
What if I have already had my will prepared?

Your legal advisor can prepare a simple document, called a codicil, that adds a new bequest while reaffirming the other terms of your will. Your will does not need to be rewritten.

This information is general in nature and is not legal or tax advice, and we encourage you to work with your legal advisor to ensure the details of your gift reflect your needs.
