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.

Family Disney Dream Vacation for a Family of 6
Hello, Last year, I was deployed for most of the year- missing the holidays and my youngest son's birthday. Shortly after my return early this year, I was tasked for a one year short tour, forcing me to miss all four of my children's birthdays and our family's significant holidays (including our wedding anniversary). My family has remained strong and has managed to keep moving forward in spite of intense hardship, heightened stress levels, and a really tough season. My wife has successfully navigated the hard job of running our household, maintaining a full time college education, and pursuing her dream of writing a book- all while raising our four children (all under the age of 12). Because of these things, I would like to take my family on a Disney Dream Vacation to celebrate all I've missed and to have the opportunity to make new memories as a family. I am applying for this Hero's Wish in order to take my family to Disney during my scheduled mid-tour rotation in May. We have four children, so I am requesting 6 Military Salute tickets to Walt Disney World in FL.

Disneyland Dream Vacation
My name is TSgt. Steven Wilson. I retired from the USAF in 2014 after serving for 17 years, I was deployed to Iraq, on my 4th deployment (2011) I was injured in an IED blast. I received a Purple Heart due to my TBI, I also suffer from hearing loss, back and knee pain, PTSD, migraines and memory issues. I had brain surgery in 2013 and had to cut my military career short due to ongoing symptoms from the blasts. My wife and children have supported me through all of my ups and downs since my injury, it would be nice to spend quality time with my family at the Happiest Place on Earth. I would love to take my large family to Disneyland, my children have not experienced the fun and magic of Disneyland, I would love to share that with them. I would like to request 12 three day park hopper passes so we could all go together. My children are 17, 16, 15 & 15 (twins), 14, 12, 8, 4 and nearly 3 & 3 (twins).

Family of 6 Disney World Wish
My name is SPC Andrew Boktor. I have been in the Army National Guard since high school and this September will make 9 years total. I was on a 15 month deployment because my return date continued to get delayed due to COVID 19. This was my first deployment and it was one of the hardest yet rewarding things to do in my life. I missed holidays, special occasions and the passing of my grandmother and uncle. It is a honor to serve our great country. However, I could not have done that without my amazing support system back home. My wife, mother, father, brother & sister-in law, all made me stronger during the deployment. My wife’s family took me on my first Disney trip 9 years ago and we all enjoyed the extraordinary time together. My father in law has recently been diagnosed with a debilitating disease called Inclusion Body Myositis. His time of being ambulatory may come to an end sooner than we all would like. I just want to be able to give back to my family as much as they have given to me. This is the first time I have been away from my wife (we went to middle school, high school, and college together) and it took a stressful toll on both of us. She is my rock. I just want to show my appreciation for my family by taking them on a trip to Disney World in Orlando, FL. I am asking for 4 day tickets for 6 members of my family. Their strength and prayers helped bring me home safe. With all the negativity going on during a pandemic and deployment, my family deserves some magic and joy. We are truly humbled and thankful to be considered for this wish fulfillment. Thank you VETTIX for all you do!

Universal Orlando (Universal Studios and Islands of Adventure)
I am a SGT with the South Carolina Army National Guard. I have been in for 12 years, and I am currently in the Middle East on my 2nd deployment. Due to train up at the NTC in California and Ft. Bliss, TX I have been away from my family since June of 2019, and I should be scheduled to be home sometime in October. When not serving my country, I am serving my community. I am a Class II Officer in South Carolina and help run a shift at a County Detention Center. So, between military and law enforcement, I am almost always away from home. I have a wonderful wife (Caroline), and we have three great children (Caitlin 11, Caleb 10, and Cooper 3). My family has always sacrificed so much of themselves for me whenever duty has called, and they have done so selflessly. They allow me to go with no remorse or regrets, only love and support! They lift me up and encourage me along my path! While all the while, they continue on with their life while I am away. My wife works full time, and still manages to take care of our house and family! My two oldest children always willingly step up to assist her, and my youngest child, through the excellent examples of his older siblings, does what he can to help around the house as well! They have grown and matured so quickly and deserve to take time to be children and enjoy themselves! I would like to take my family on a 4-day trip to Universal Orlando (Universal Studios and Islands of Adventure). I would like to request a total of 5, 4 day 2-park park-to-park tickets for Me, my wife, and our three children. If anyone deserves to be blessed with such a trip, it is my Wife and children, because when I serve, they serve, and they hardly ever get the recognition! So, I want to show them how much they are appreciated, and let that know that their sacrifices, and their love for me, all military and law personnel, and their country has not gone unnoticed. I am wanting to take them in late December because my daughter's birthday is on December 23rd. And I figured that this would be a great Birthday for her, as well as a great Christmas for her and the rest of my family. I know this cannot make up for any missed time but hope that it can help instill a memory of joy for them to remember for years to come.
