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.

Disney World
My name is Capt M. Josh Ogburn. I am currently deployed as a Navigator on the RC-135RJ, and have been deployed or TDY for 3/4 or this past year. My wife is the real hero, she has been raising our kids as a single parent with no close family support. Beyond that, my son was diagnosed with Spina Bifida early in the pregnancy, and my wife chose to undergo fetal repair surgery to give him the most favorable outcome. This involved delivering him via C-section at almost 24 weeks gestation, receiving surgery on his back, and then placing him back in the womb to continue to develop. After 3 months of bed rest to avoid preterm labor, Zeke was born the second time at 35 weeks. I am so thankful for the sacrifice my wife made for our son's future, as well as the incredible work she does on a daily basis to provide for a special needs child and a very spirited 4 year old daughter! My wish is to take them to Disney World for a family vacation after my deployment and follow-up training this year. I would love to have four 4-day park hopper passes to be able to take some time to invest in our family.

I am a wounded Warrior with deployments to Iraq. I have 2 children.

I have spent most the time during 2003 to 2013 with the deployments and military necessary time away from my family. With short intervals of time at home. I feel that going to these games would involve family time to reconnect with my wife and children. Thank you in advance for this opportunity to be with my family.

2017 F1 US Grand Prix
My name is Sergeant Troy Thomas. I am currently post-deployment from my second tour in Afghanistan. I am working my way into being more comfortable in crowds and social settings. I am a HUGE Formula One fan and missed most of the past few seasons due to deployments. I have not been to Austin, TX to see the new facility or a race and I would love to take my wife and experience F1, one of my favorite sports. I would like to respectfully request tickets for the practice and qualifying sessions, along with the actual race. Regardless of what I may receive, I am grateful for the opportunity to share my love of F1 and I appreciate your consideration.

Disney World
Hi Everyone! Thank you so much for taking a moment to read this and for supporting our military! I am currently on active duty, approaching my 12 year mark and just returned from deployment. We are a family of 6 and I would love the opportunity to spend either Christmas or Thanksgiving at Walt Disney World with my family this year since I missed being home with them in 2016. Disney World is our family's "happy place" and even though our children are growing up (we have one graduating high school in June) and getting older, Disney has a way of bringing us all closer together. I would especially like to be able to take them to the Very Merry Christmas Party one evening! Thank you again for all of your support!

Disney World Family Trip
Hello, I am SPC Sam Pearson, I am currently deployed to Afghanistan, this is my 2nd deployment. My first deployment was with 10th Mountain Division, conducting route clearance with combat engineers, this deployment I am with the Infantry out of Fort Bliss. My first time away from 2 of my kids, My wife and I have 3 together. Two of them were born between the first deployment and this one. As far as our children, One is currently 5 months old, and the other is nearly two. And the third has just turned 5. None of my family, including myself have ever been to Disney World, or even Florida. And we have figured it would be a dream trip upon my return. I am looking to take my family on a trip to Disney World.
