Bequests are the most common type of planned gifts. Anyone can make a bequest to a nonprofit through their will, estate plan, or living trust. Bequests cost nothing during a donor’s lifetime. They can be included in a new will or added to an existing will or living trust through a simple amendment called a codicil (which often does not even require hiring a lawyer). Charitable bequests usually fall into three categories:
- Specific Amount: A donor can choose to allocate an exact amount of funds to be given to an organization.
- Remainder: A donor can choose for a nonprofit to receive any money left after all other bequests are paid out.
- Percentage: A donor can choose to gift an organization a set percentage of total wealth.
