MAKING A BEQUEST THROUGH A WILL:
Since Wills and Trusts are legal documents, you should seek an attorney’s help to assist with this process. Each individual’s situation is unique. The examples below are only suggestions for language frequently used in Wills to designate charitable bequests. The ACPA Foundation is not a source of legal advice.
