Bequests make up 70% of planned gifts —gifts that are given through wills. They are the simplest and most common type of estate planning gift. A bequest to YWCA New Britain gives you the opportunity to create a lasting expression of your own personal legacy. It also presents a great opportunity to discuss your philanthropic goals and philosophy with your family.
You do not need to have great wealth or a complex estate plan to include YWCA New Britain in your will or trust. A bequest can appear in your original will or in a codicil, and is revocable should you change your mind.
Making a bequest is as easy as adding this suggested language to your will:
I give and bequeath to YWCA New Britain, New Britain, CT 06051 the sum of $____ (or ____% of the rest, residue and remainder of my estate) for the general purposes of supporting YWCA New Britain.
