Bequest

Making a specific bequest or leaving a percentage of your estate to Boys and Girls Homes through your Last Will & Testament is likely the most common planned gift, and is the easiest to arrange. Combining all your assets and property allows for more flexibility in leaving either a fixed dollar amount to your family, friends, or B&GH, or a specific percentage of your estate to be divided among a named list. It is not uncommon to leave specific bequests to family members and the remainder of the estate divided equally among a variety of charitable organizations.

Some factors to consider when exploring a charitable bequest through your will are:

  • Assets you own
  • Family considerations
  • Number of charitable priorities

Here is sample language that can be used to leave a bequest or remainder gift in your will.
