Types of gifts
A charitable bequest can take a variety of forms, including:
- Residue: The remainder of your estate after specific gifts have been made.
- Percentage: This can be a percentage of the residue of your estate or a percentage of your entire estate.
- Asset: This could include real estate, shares, bonds or other articles of value.
- Pecuniary gift: A cash amount. You may consider including an adjustment to account for inflation.
We recommend that you discuss your wishes with family and loved ones.
