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.

Post Deployment Disney World Trip
My name is TSgt Badri Francis and I am currently deployed outside of the US. I am a Contracting Officer for the United States Air Force and have been serving for the past seven years. During this deployment I have missed two of my kids birthdays and my anniversary with my wife. I really want to be able to do something truly special with them after I return from this deployment. This is my second deployment in as many years, with a PCS and having a house built in between the two it has not allowed for a lot of quality family time. My wish is to have 5 4-day Disney World Park Hopper tickets (for my wife, three kids, and myself) so that we can enjoy this time together before the children return to school. Thank you all in advance for helping me provide this amazing opportunity to my family.

Minnesota Vikings vs Green Bay Packers game
My name is Tsgt Joye Lamme. I was deployed to the 455 EMDG Bagram Afghanistan from Oct 18 to April 19. I was away from my family for almost 7 months. I missed both my oldest's freshman and senior years due to deployments. I have 2 boys who have been amazing troopers. I'm lucky they are so understanding and adaptable. As a huge Minnesota Vikings fan I would love to be able to go and watch the Vikings play Green Bay at their home stadium with amazing seats! I have just got back from my second deployment to Afghanistan. All of my deployments have been during Football season. Thank goodness for AFN but we were limited on the games that they showed.

4 Day Park Hopper Disneyland Tickets for family of 6
Hi everyone! My name is MSgt Angel Palacios and I am currently deployed overseas. I am a firefighter in the Air Force Reserve as well as for the county in which I live. I was recently activated and deployed overseas for 9+ months. My wife Candice is a first grade teacher who works tirelessly to ensure that the needs of her students are met all the while caring for our two children, Brielle (9) and Brayden (11) and maintaining our household. My wife's parents have also shown true dedication and tremendous support for our family during this deployment by taking care of our kids before and after school while my wife is teaching. I would love to surprise my family with 4-day park hopper tickets to Disneyland when I return. Can you help me show my gratitude to my family for their amazing support by taking them on a post-deployment Disney vacation? I am requesting 6 tickets so that I may surprise my wife, her parents, and our 2 children with a trip to Disneyland when I return from deployment later this year. Like many deployed service members I have missed birthdays, holidays, and anniversaries this year and I would greatly appreciate the opportunity to reconnect with my family through this vacation to "The Happiest Place on Earth"! Thank you for your help in making my families dreams come true!

San Francisco 49ers game Ultimate Fan Package
My name is Sgt Miles, Hugh of the USMC. I am an 0341 mortarman. I have been deployed 4 times 2 combat tours and 2 tours to Okinawa. I have just gotten back from my last deployment of my career. I have 1 year left in the Marine Corps. With the fast pace of deployments and being in the infantry I have not had time to keep up with the 49ers. The last time I saw a game they were playing at candlestick park. The have recently moved to Levi stadium and a new practice facility. My wish is for me and my family to go watch a 49ers practice at there new facility then to be able to watch a game that same weekend at the new Levi stadium. I have been a die hard 49ers fan my entire life. I was able to watch their 2013 Super Bowl game while I was in Afghanistan at 3am. I stayed up all night to watch the game. It would be amazing if my wish would be granted.

George Strait concert
My name is SSG Larry Schwab. I met my wife in Texas 31 years ago in 1988. I was stationed at Ft. Hood Texas 2nd armor Division. We had tickets to go to see George Strait in Temple Texas and had been dating for about 3 months. On our way to the Concert my girlfriend and I realized that we were in love and both wanted to get married immediately. We never did make it to the George Strait concert. Please know that we have no regrets. We would have traded anything to be together forever. We became so busy with raising seven children one handicapped And in 1990 being sent to Desert Shield which turned into desert storm and then being wounded in a mine field just inside Kuwait. I was awarded the Purple Heart but could no longer serve. We never got the chance to see George Strait. We've always wanted to, But never got the chance. Our handicapped son was born with Pradre Willie Syndrome He is now 26 and was declared a helpless child by the VA and will live with us his whole life. In 2016 I suffered a widow maker heart attack and now have to carry nitro with me. My wife Debbie and I would still very much like to see George Straight in concert. We are sure that if we don't get to see him soon we never will. It would mean the world to us as that is where we were headed when our life together started. ‎Sat ‎24 ‎Aug, ‎2019 – ‎8‎:‎00‎ ‎PM George Strait 08.24 - Troubadour with Ashley McBryde T-Mobile Arena, Las Vegas NV Thank you and God Bless!

Disney World Family Vacation
Hello. My father, Capt. Carl E. Jackson, is MIA from Vietnam as of June 27, 1965. We never got a body back - only a few personal belongings. We were told several different stories about what might have happened to him and will never truth from fiction. Initially, we were told he was KIA. We later found out that there was an attempt to rescue him from a POW camp in October, 1966. Dad was a Captain at the time of his Vietnam incident. I am not sure how many deployments he was sent on as I was only 10 when the incident occurred. I do know that he was away from home a lot. My father was away much of my life and aside from the trips to visit grandparents, there was only one vacation that we went on. That is one of the dearest memories that I have of him. I would like to take my husband, children (daughter, son-in-law, and son), and my grandchildren (girl, boy, and one on the way) to Disney World so that we all can have our own memories. I thank you for your consideration.
