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 FAMILY TRIP FOR IRAQ AND AFGHANISTAN COMBAT VETERAN
Hello, my name is Nelson Martinez. I am a retired Marine, husband, and father of 4. I retired summer of 2018 after 22 years of service. Throughout my service, I had various combat tours and assignments, making it difficult to have a Disney World trip, much less plan it. While in the Marine Corps, I dedicated myself to accomplishing the mission first. I often put the Corps and mission first and my family second, and I could only do this through my wife, children, friends, and family's support. Both my wife and I sacrificed much to make our time in the Corps work. I deployed three times to Iraq between 2003 and 2009. I also deployed twice in support of Operation Enduring Freedom to Africa and Afghanistan in 2001-02 and again to Afghanistan in 2010. In between deployments, I was assigned to commands that trained Sailors or Marines for combat deployments or headquarters commands that planned combat deployments for various units. I also spent time at the Marine Corps Wounded Warrior Batallion in 2011. My time at Wounded Warrior Battalion was to take care of injuries I sustained in 2003 deployed to Iraq and a TBI I received in 2010 while deployed to Afghanistan. Between 2001 and 2010, I was heavily deployed and ignored many physical, mental, and emotional issues and injuries to accomplish the mission overseas. Like many veterans during that time, the mission to fight and train for combat came first. Because of that, many veterans, myself included, caused and faced issues not just for ourselves but for our families. Our families sacrificed greatly to help us accomplish our mission. Now that I have been retired for some time and our children are a little older, we can finally plan a trip to Disney World. We have never taken a "true" family vacation for the reasons described above, and we have always taken short weekend trips somewhere or made the best of our children's sports events requiring travel. This year, however, my spring break from college classes and our kids' spring break from elementary and high school line up, making it easy to plan a family trip. Our family is a total of 6. My wife and I have three boys, aged 22, 16, and 9, and our daughter, 14. I am asking for help to purchase 6 tickets for our family to Disney World for the week of March 6-11, 2023. I would greatly appreciate any help to make this dream possible for my family. This trip will be a blessing for our family's many sacrifices. I thank everyone ahead of time for making helping me make this dream come true for them. SEMPER FIDELIS!

FAMILY TRIP TO DISNEYLAND
My name is James Campbell. I am being medically retired after nearly 14 years of military service in the United States Navy. Life has been difficult for my family. In 2013, I deployed to Afghanistan with a Tier 1 Special Operations Joint Taskforce. In many ways, it was the most rewarding experience of my life – in others the deployment had severe consequences for my family and myself. The OPSTEMPO was relentless, we were manned ISR supporting near daily air strikes and compound raids. I suffered a mild Traumatic Brain Injury in country, I began to have nightmares, and was suspicious of everyone. My wife had left me during the deployment, and I came home a single father of my two sons. I remarried in 2018 in Las Vegas to my amazing and supportive wife Brittany, who took on my sons as her own. A month later, we did a PCS move to Hawaii for a desk job as an intelligence analyst and we thought life was going to be our honeymoon. It wasn’t. In 2019, due to my military affiliations, my family was stalked by an extremist who wrote a manifesto planning to do heinous acts to my wife and our two sons. He has since murdered his cell mate and our life has not been the same since the home invasion. Our life literally became a lifetime special. We have moved from state to state to state, first on Humanitarian Support orders, then again because medical treatment wasn’t available due to COVID restrictions. I suffer from Chronic Severe PTSD related to the combat and civilian traumas. Brittany has been incredibly supportive, and we had a baby girl who is now a year old. I’ve been to every level of treatment that exists, residential, partial hospitalization, group, etc etc etc. Even tried Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation therapy. I can’t seem to get back to where I was. Admittedly, this began back in 2013, but I couldn’t manage more than one session of exposure therapy. Now that my service is wrapping up, I feel defeated, like I have let my family down. I am being rated 100% P&T for combat related PTSD with comorbid TBI, Narcolepsy, and Migraines amongst others. I would love for the opportunity to receive 4-day park hopper tickets to take my wife and the kids to Disneyland. I don’t like to get out of the house, but I think with the right accommodations through guest services, I would love to just feel like a normal family again.

Post Deployment Disney World Vacation
Hello! My name is SSG David Crabaugh. I have served 14 years in the Army National Guard with 6 of those years being either mobilized for deployment or in the Active Guard and Reserves (AGR) program. I recently returned from an 11 month rotation in the Middle East where I operated in countries such as Jordan, Kuwait, Qatar and United Arab Emirates. This recent rotation in which I returned days prior to Thanksgiving was a tough one being away from home unlike the last when deployed to Afghanistan. The reason for this was my two sons, Dresden (7) and Dedrick (5). I thought being gone during the younger years would be easier than when they are older but I thought wrong. The missed birthdays, holidays and spending time with them means so much more at these ages. We have been blessed with good health while I was away serving but now that I am home the boys have one desire to take daddy too, welcome to the idea of Disney World 2023! My wife, Yamilka who is from the country of Panama, is a full time student with the University of Central Missouri working on a Bachelors Degree in Nutrition. This has been challenging for her these past two semesters while I was away. She will be finished in May 2023. I want to surprise them all with a much needed family vacation to Orlando and visit the parks of Disney World and make the boys dream come true and celebrate the success of my wife and show my appreciation to them all. We are seeking assistance with 4 4-day Park Hopper Passes as well as 4 EPCOT Seas Adventures - Dolphin in the Depth. The last time we visited Yamilka's home country of Panama, we took a boat ride where we saw many dolphin swimming near the boat. My children and wife would love to be in the water with the dolphins.

DISNEY WORLD SURPRISE TRIP!
Hello, I'm Technical Sergeant Nicholas Cosand. I've served in the active-duty Air Force for 8 years as a cybersecurity technician. I have been overseas for 4 of those years and TDY over 10 times. I have been married to my wonderful and supportive wife Carly going on six years. Recently I was tasked with a short-notice deployment to the Middle East immediately after returning home from a long TDY. This has caused me to be away from home and my family for all but two months of 2022. Throughout this, my wife has been so understanding and has been my anchor of sanity and support. I know this has been equally as hard on her as it has been for me, which is why I want to surprise her with a vacation to her favorite place on earth. My wife is a huge Disney fan and has been wanting to revisit Disney World for years. I would love to surprise her with 4-day park hopper tickets to Disney World in Florida. This would be our first vacation in two years and it would mean the world to catch up on some quality time with my wife that we both so desperately need! Thank you for your consideration and thank you Vettix for giving us the opportunity to share our story.
