Bequests offer one of the simplest ways to make a gift to the Woman’s Club and create a personal legacy of a commitment to our organization. Bequests are gifts made through a will or living trust and are especially popular for people who want to make a gift of significant size but who cannot give up income or capital during their lifetime. Gifts by will or living trusts may be for a set dollar amount, a percentage of the total estate, or the residual amount (funds leftover after all expenses have been paid). This future gift is revocable, and you retain control of the assets to meet future needs. Bequests of all sizes benefit the Woman’s Club.
The following language is an example of how a bequest or living trust may be worded:
“I give, devise and bequeath to the Woman’s Club of Coconut Grove (Woman’s Club), a Florida nonprofit corporation (FEIN No. 59-0298445), with its principal place of business at 2985 South Bayshore Drive, Coconut Grove, FL. Coconut Grove, Florida, the sum of $_________ and/or the following described property: __________________________________________________ (description) and/or _____% of the residue of my estate for the benefit of the Woman’s Club to be used for (specified use or unrestricted).
