BEQUEST LANGUAGE

The following statements about Planned Giving are examples of suggested bequest wording to benefit the Decatur County Family YMCA.

Planning for the future and creating the legacy you wish to leave is one of the most effective ways to ensure a lasting impact. Making a gift in your will or living trust, known as a bequest, can guarantee that your legacy endures. Your gift may be a specific dollar amount, a percentage of your estate or the remainder after all other provisions are specified.

Each individual situation is unique; therefore, these examples include only some of the possible gift opportunities. Because a will is a legal document, we encourage you to discuss your intentions with your attorney, financial advisor and with us at the YMCA to guarantee that your wishes will be properly followed and recognized.

To assist you with this consultation we offer suggested wording below.
