A Bequest to Further Good Work

A Bequest to Further Good Work
Early in David's career he received a research scholarship. Over the years, he had seen many advantages of that initial support. He wanted to create a legacy to provide future resources to continue supporting early clinicians.

David: Research is important to me. I annually made cash gifts but wanted to do more. After receiving a newsletter I learned my partner and I could make a gift from our estate and join the legacy society. We saw a picture of smiling people just like us, and we wanted to be part of that group.

We met with our lawyer to revise our wills, and we each included a provision for a bequest to charity. Our lawyer put language in the will that allows a percentage of our estate to go to our favorite charities. This was easy to arrange and permits us to still use our assets during our lives if we need them.
