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 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.

Disney World Vacation
My name is CPT Leon Forystek and I am currently serving my fourth deployment in the military overseas with the 371SB all over Iraq and Afghanistan. I have 4 kids ranging 1-4.I have missed all my children being born, all holidays, birthdays, walking, first tooth pulled, first day of school, and so on. The first thing that I would love to do for my kids the very first time without missing anything is to take them to Disney in Florida when I return in April of 2018. With pre-deployment training, I have not been able to take my kids anywhere or barely take them to the park, so this trip would mean so much to me and my children. I am going to retire when I return and thought I can at least share a great moment with my family.

To take my family to Disney World
I am a Navy Corpsman, currently on my 3rd deployment. I am married to my beautiful wife, Sandra, and we have 3 boys -Kayden (7), Christopher (5), and Samuel (1). Due to monetary constraints, I have been unable to give my family a true vacation. I wish to bring my family to Disney World and have a memorable vacation with them. The military keeps me away from my family far more than I wish, and I want to have a special vacation with my family. I don't want my boys to look back and only remember me being gone all the time. I want my family to have a little bit of fun if that is possible.

Disneyland
Sgt Tim Ngo. I would love to take my girlfriend and her son to Disnyland. Her son loves Mickey Mouse and I would like to make his dream come true to meet Mickey. To make his world would be my Wish and dream. I suffered a TBI due to 4 grenades being thrown at my squad. I pushed a brother out of the way of the first grenade. Thus taking the blast for him blowing my helmet off. The second grenade landed 2 feet away from the left side of my head. Shattering the left side of my skull. The third grenade landed near my feet as my team leader was pulling me to safety. He pulled me out of the range of that blast. The fourth and final grenade was thrown while my squad tried to put me in the back of the Humvee. My team leader covered me from the blast. I had to have a full blood transfusion due to the amount of blood I lost that day. Once back in the states I had to learn how to do everything all over again. I also had to wear a helmet to protect my head while I waited to get my plate put in. Long term injuries are seizures and short term memory. With a low PTSD level. I also have pains on my lower back due to shrapnel and pains in my knees.

Family Trip to Disney World
Hello my name is SGT Jeremy A. Looman. I just returned from Ukraine in support of Operation Atlantic Resolve with the Army National Guard. My youngest son, Sean, was born on the first day that I deployed to Ukraine. I returned a 2 weeks ago, and could only afford to take a week off before returning back to work. I have spent over 4 years in a combat zone, most of that time on Active Duty status with the 173D ABCT. It would mean the world to me spend time with Sean, and the rest of my beautiful family. My wish is for 6 Disney World Park Hopper Passes. My wife is amazing, such a sweet person and so deserving of a vacation. Even if this wish doesn't come true, I feel blessed to have served in the United States Army and the National Guard. My beautiful family consists of 7 but only need tickets for 6 because Sean is so young. Jenny my beautiful wife, Kyra (13), Halle (11), Jeremy Jr. (5), Jace (3), and Sean (7 Mo) and myself.

Post Deployment Family Vacation DisneyWorld
My name is SGT Jeremiah Brewington. I am currently deployed to assist in Operation Enduring Freedom. This is my second deployment. During the course of this deployment my wife gave birth to our 4th child prematurely. Our other 3 children (5,4,3) have been more than patient while their mother has adjusted to life with 4 kiddos temporarily on her own. They've had to deal with many of illnesses, unexpected diagnoses, and surgeries while I've been away. I feel that it's time to bring some light into their lives, and would love the opportunity to take them to Disney World.
