Legacy Giving

One of the best ways to steward the resources entrusted to you is to have an up-to-date will or trust.
Leaving a gift in your will (sometimes called a bequest) to a ministry or charity that you believe in is a great expression of your personal values, and it may be simpler than you think. We’ve developed language for the most common types of in-will gifts. These are suggestions and should be written or adapted by your legal counsel to fit your situation.

General Support
“I give _______ (% or dollar amount) of my estate to: People International f Vancouver, WA for its general use.”

Specific Program
“I give ____ (% or dollar amount) of my estate to: People International of Vancouver, WA or the (Name of the Project or Fund).”

Remainder of Estate
“I give and devise to: People International of Vancouver WA all (or state a percentage) of the rest, residue and remainder of my estate, both real and personal, to be used for its general support (or for the support of a specific fund or program).”

Use one of these common ways to significantly increase your charitable impact through your will or trust:

Percentage. Others commit a percentage of their estate to the charitable organizations they believe in, dividing the remainder among their heirs,

• Cap. Some families decide to “cap” their children’s inheritance, leaving the rest of their assets to charities.

• Update an existing will. An attorney can add, delete, or change an item in your will with an additional statement called a “codicil.” Here’s an example: “I give, devise, and bequeath twenty- five percent (25%) of my residuary estate to [charity name] whose address is [city, state, zip code].” Like a will, a codicil must be dated, signed, and witnessed.

• Add a child named “Charity.”Some families treat charitable organizations like an additional child. For example, if a family has three children, they might add a fourth child named “Charity” and divide the assets in their will into four equal parts. Each of their children would receive 25%, and the remaining 25% would be divided among their favorite charitable organizations.
