How do I make a bequest?
Making a bequest is simple. If you have already prepared your will, you can update it with a codicil, which is a supplementary document added to the existing will, describing your gift intentions.
If you have not yet prepared a will, we recommend you do so as soon as possible. This is an important first step to ensure your intentions for your estate are documented and your family and loved ones are taken care of, properly.
You may make a specific bequest to Wellspring to identify a defined gift amount, or you may make a residual bequest, which means that you designate all or a percentage of the remaining portion of the estate, after debts, taxes, and administrative expenses have been paid.
It is important that you consult with a lawyer when drafting your will, as well as updating it when your circumstances change.
If you plan to include a bequest in your will for Wellspring, please include:
