A charitable bequest is a gift one leaves in their will. On making a bequest, donors are often able to make greater contributions than they could otherwise have afforded during their lifetime while providing an ongoing legacy for the values and causes that are most important to them. There are two types of bequests:

  • A specific bequest allows you to make a donation of a specific dollar amount.

  • A residuary bequest is a gift of all or part of the property remaining in your estate after debts, expenses and specific bequests have been paid.

A charitable bequest is fully-deductible for federal estate tax purposes.
