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 HEROS 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.

Bass Pro Shops NRA. Night Race
My name is specialist Christopher Brunelle I am a Iraq war Purple Heart Vet. I have let the PTSD get the best of me. I was injured in 2005 when a suicide bomber attacked my hummer and blew us up. My gunner was killed in the explosion. I was to proud to let anyone help me or take help from anyone. I tried to do it on my own. I just about let the PTSD get the best of me. It cost me my marriage but I'm ok with that part now. I was at a very dark place in life didn't want to be here anymore. One day I was thinking what to do and how to do it, when one of my little girls came out and said daddy just want to say I love you. I still deal with the nightmares and flashbacks but I'm use to that now. My wish is to attend the night race at Bristol Motor Speedway. I am asking for 3 hot passes and race tickets for that day because I don't drive that far anymore. For the longest time I have been unable to get out and go places, with the help of some good friends and brothers I am able to now.

Disney World Vacation
My name is Donna Cutchall. My sons and I lost the greatest man in our lives 12 years ago in Iraq. My sons were 4 and 6 years old when it happened. All of us had talked about making plans to go to Disney World when he got back home, but that never happened. My sons now are 16 and 18 and still to this day want to go. My wish is to take my boys to Disney World. We are unable to go because of my current income. I just lost my sons social security money and lost my job. Out of all the wishes we could request, this one would help us feel more complete. Doing what we would have done if SSGT Christopher Cutchall were still alive.

Cardinals V. Patriots Football Game
Hello my name is Jaime De La Paz and I am a medically retired SSG from injuries sustained during my final deployment to Afghanistan. My time in the military has been amazing regardless of some barriers my family and I had to overcome. I have multiple deployments to Iraq and Afghanistan and no matter how hard some of those deployments where I wouldn't change anything because they have molded me into the person I am today. I am married to the most wonderful women that has stuck by me throughout this entire roller coaster of my career. She has been my motivation that keeps me going day to day. She is now my care taker and I have never see her complain one bit regardless of my needs from my injuries She put her needs aside to help take care of me. We have 5 wonderful and beautiful kids Alexis(11), Mia (10), Joseph (9), Mya (8) and the baby Jade(2). My family is super close but once football season comes around it makes us even closer. Even though my household is dominated with pink and barbies, come Sunday during football season, you will find my entire family glued to the TV watching the New England Patriots. We have never been to an actual football game and I would love to be able to take my family to one, especially to watch our team the Patriots play. Thank You from me and my family!

Magical Getaway to Disney World
My name is SSgt Matthew Peluyera. I am currently serving in the USAF and on my first deployment. While I have been serving my country for the past year my wife is serving our family which consists of our two and a half year old daughter and our two large dogs. My wife has dealt with potty training, dogs going through surgery and recovery, working from home, working outside of the home, taking care of our house, helping a toddler through deployment, volunteering at church, toddler tantrums, holidays and family gatherings alone and all while going through her first deployment as well. My wife works tirelessly to make sure that our family is taken care of and most days without a break or help of any kind. I want more than anything to be able to give my wife a break. A break from dishes and laundry and taking care of everyone but herself. She loves Disney, as does my daughter and has always wanted to stay at the Fort Wilderness Lodge. Being able to take my wife and daughter on a four night trip to stay at the Fort Wilderness Lodge would not only allow my wife time to relax and unwind but also allow our family time to bond and grow closer without the distractions of everyday life. Over the last year I have been in Training or Deployed for both Mother's Day and my wife's birthday - the two times of year that I would normally get to spoil her. This trip would help me to show her how much she means to me and how much I appreciate her supporting me so that I can serve our country.

Disney World for Granddaughter.
My Name is Sherrie Norden. I am a Gold Star Daughter of USAF CAPT. CARL E. JACKSON MIA, VIETNAM, 27 JUNE 65. We asked our 11 year old granddaughter, if you could go anywhere on vacation, where would you want to go. Of course, she said Disney World. We booked our hotel (Wyndham Cypress Resort in Kissimmee, FL) for Thanksgiving week. As luck would have it, the transmission went out in our vehicle and due to that expense, had to cancel the trip. We can afford the hotel, but not theme park tickets :( Taylor has been a real trooper about it though.

Family Trip to Disneyland
I am TSgt Jason Caceres and have served in the Air Force for over 18 years. I have a family of 5 so at times it is hard for me to afford to take my family to do fun things like this so I'm hoping this will allow me to do that for them. I have been married to my beautiful wife for 10 years now and we have 3 beautiful children. Over the last 18 years of service I have missed many birthdays, anniversaries, and holidays with my family. They have had to deal with my countless deployments to Afghanistan and Iraq and I have missed them growing up. My wife has been a trooper taking care of 3 kids while I have been away and dealing with her diagnosis of Multiple Sclerosis. I have known of Vet Tix for a while now but recently learned of the Hero's Wish program and thought, hey it never hurts to ask right! So I would LOVE for 5 Disneyland in Anaheim CA 3-Day Park Hopper Tickets for myself, my wife, Melayna (17), Jackson (11), and Lyvea (6). As I near retirement I would love to be able to surprise them with this special trip to say thank you for the years they have had to go without me being there. Thank you to the wonderful supporters of Vet Tix and to the awesome folks who created and continue to operate this wonderful non-profit organization for the opportunity.
