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.

Hamilton at the Kennedy Center in Washington, DC
My name is LCDR Hugh Wilson. In December 2017 I returned from a reserve mobilization and six month deployment to Iraq. The deployment was a rewarding experience, but was somewhat unexpected and followed 14 months of working the night shift as a warehouse manager. During the deployment, my wife (a former Army Officer and Afghanistan veteran) was pregnant with our second daughter (she was born 3 days after I returned), raising our 2 year old and working full time. She never complained once throughout my deployment and was an amazing partner to me and mother to our girls. I would like to do something special for her to show my appreciation for the outstanding support and care she provided to our daughters and I while I was deployed. I would like to request two ticket for my wife and I to attend Hamilton when the touring production comes to the Kennedy Center in Washington, DC.

Disney World Vacation
Hello, my name is SSG Phi Nguyen and I just recently returned home from my 2nd deployment and wish to take my family on a vacation to Disney World. After my 1st deployment I was unable to take them anywhere on a vacation so I would love to surprise them this time around with a trip to Disney World. Although this was only my 2nd deployment, I have missed countless birthdays, anniversaries, multiple holidays and school functions which has been really tough on my family, not just myself. I want to let my family know that I appreciate them for all their sacrifices that they have had to make while I was away. I would love to have three 4-day park hopper passes to Disney World. Thank you so much for any help in making my wish for my family dream come true. I greatly appreciate all the support.

Disney World Park Hopper tickets
Hello, my name is Bryan Silveri and I am currently deployed over seas where I have been since the beginning of September and I am due back sometime in April. This is my 6th deployment in 13 years and this has also been the most stressful and difficult one. It has been hard on me, but it has also taken a toll on my family. My 7yr old daughter Lucy and my 5yr old son Jackson are now old enough to understand that I am gone and it will be long time. It's especially hard on my son be he is Autistic and constantly fixates/obsesses over me being gone, if I am safe, or when I will be back home. So he has been extremely repetitive lately. Aside from that, this has really been difficult for my wife, because she is managing our son alone, along with my very delightful and helpful daughter. I would like to take them to Disney World in hopes of making up for all the birthdays, holidays, dr. appts, therapy appts, and events I have missed out on. I think everyone will enjoy it and it will give my wife hope again that everything will be fine. It will also help with my son obsessing over seeing Mickey! I miss home and I miss my family and I need this to help transition us as a family again, because after all, we are all human. Thanks for taking the time to read this.

Disney World Family Vacation
My name is Eric Perkins. I was a Specialist in the NY Army National Guard 2-108th Infantry. I enlisted in July 2001. After September 11th, I was called to active duty for two years to assist with homeland security. I then deployed to Afghanistan from 2007-2008 where I was a member of a six-man team that embedded with and trained the Afghan National Police. In July 2008 I suffered a head injury when a suicide bomber attacked my vehicle; for which I received a Purple Heart. I returned home to my wife and my 3 amazing children; Tyler 8, Owen 6, and Isabella 4. Isabella was diagnosed with Chiari Malformation when she was just a year old and subsequently had to have a neurosurgeon perform a decompression surgery. She has aspiration and reflux problems that require her not drink and receive her hydration by J-tube. Additionally she has sleep apnea which requires her to wear a bi-pap mask while sleeping. Providing the care she, and her brothers, need can be overwhelming at times but we have received the help of some amazing people along the way. All of the kids love Disney but Isabella absolutely loves Frozen. During one of her hospital stays (28 days) she insisted Frozen be played on a loop the entire time. I dream of seeing all of their delight in experiencing the Magic of Disney World. I simply cannot afford to make it happen on my own right now. I am thankful for the existence of this program for all those who it has already helped and I am now humbly wishful it can assist me in creating unforgettable memories for my entire family. I would like to request (5) 4-day Park Hopper Passes to Disney World.
