Planned Giving Sample Language

It is important to understand that a Will requires specific language to properly relay your wishes.  The language used can vary and can be either very complex or very simple.  Here is some typical bequest language:

“I give, devise, and bequeath to Little Flower Children and Family Services of New York, a non-profit entity, located at 2450 North Wading River Road, Wading River, NY 11792, …

…the sum of $______.”

Or

…_____% of my residue estate.”

Or

….The rest and residue of my estate.”
