Sample charitable bequest language
The most common way people remember Food For Thought in a will or living trust is through a charitable bequest. You do not have to rewrite your current documents. You simply add an amendment, called a codicil, to your will or living trust. Here is some suggested language you can have your attorney review:
“I give, devise and bequeath to Food For Thought (tax I.D. #68-0181095), located in Forestville, California, the sum of _________________ dollars ($ _______________) (Or state a percentage of your estate, or describe real or personal property, including exact location) for the benefit of its general purposes (or specify the Food For Thought program you wish to support).”
Your bequest is entirely under your control during life and becomes irrevocable only at death. If you have questions about bequests, contact contact Mark Green, Development Director, at (707) 887-1647 x 102 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
Upon completing your bequest, we will be honored to enroll you in Food For Thought’s Legacy Circle. Please let us know of your bequest by contacting Mark Green.
