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.

Disneyland family vacation
My name is SSG Donald Watson, I would love to surprise my family of 5 with a post deployment vacation to Disneyland. My family has supported me through every deployment, training and I want to thank them. I have been active duty for 11 years and I have deployed twice to Iraq, once to Afghanistan, once to Korea and I am currently deployed. Through these deployments and trainings I have missed many holidays and special occasions. My daughter is now 7 and I have only been present for her 2nd birthday. I would love to take this vacation in September for her birthday before my next possible deployment in late 2020.

Disney World
Hello, I am TSgt Edric Johnson. I am currently in month 4 of a 6 month deployment at an undisclosed location. This is my second deployment in 3 years. My lovely wife (Debra) and daughter (Sydney) have been patiently awaiting my return. This hasn't been the easiest of deployments cause we miss each other terribly. I'm sure it's not easy on all of my fellow brothers and sister in arms who are away from their loved ones. Sydney and Debra have been my pillar of strength to help me through this deployment. To show my deepest gratitude, I am making a Hero's Wish. I would love to receive 3 Disney World 4 day park hopper tickets and give them the experience of a lifetime. Thank you for your support.

A Trip to Disney World - 5-Day Park Hopper Passes
My name is Capt Harold “Joe” Gotwald. I am active duty Air Force and am currently deployed until January. My wife has been with me my whole Air Force journey these past 9 years. This is my first deployment and my wife is at home holding down the fort with our 3 very active kids Evie (5), Lily (3), and Jack (2). It will be our 10 year anniversary next fall and she tells me our daughters are obsessed with playing Disney Princess and my son is fanatical with all things Mickey Mouse. This deployment has been difficult for my family. It would be amazing to treat her and my three kids to a trip to Disney World this coming March to make up for all of the birthdays, holidays, appointments, play times, and tea parties I’ve missed. I am asking for 4 tickets for 5 days of Disney World magic, it would mean the world to my family. Thank you

Disney World Vacation
My name is SSG Ryan Bock, I recently returned from South Korea being away from my children and not seeing them for 1 year. I am recently divorced and happily remarried and now am the father to 4 wonderful children ranging in ages from 7-11 (2 Boys - 2 Girls). My family, with our conflicting schedules due to custody agreements have never been able to take all 4 of the children anywhere together nor spend holidays together. I would like the chance to take all 4 children and my wonderful wife who is currently going to school to become a doctor to Disney World. With my wife's school schedule she is unable to work currently and also a 100% Disabled Veteran after her 7 years of service. Granting this wish would be an amazing sight to see all 4 children together having the time of their life in the happiest place on earth. Thank you for your help sincerely. I will need 6 tickets total. One for each family member.

A Special Trip to Walt Disney World
My name is MSgt Christopher Hess. I am currently deployed overseas until next year in Niger supporting the base's MWR program. When I get home I would like to surprise my family with the opportunity to spend 4-5 days at Walt Disney World. Over the past three years me and my family have been working through the after effects of a car accident my wife suffered. She was struck from behind and suffered a concussion, which resulted in her being off work for awhile. We have been grateful for opportunities provided by Vet Tix to go to events but I would like to use my one Hero's Wish for my wife and two daughters. I would be grateful for the opportunity to give them 4-5 days that they will never forget.
