SAMPLE BEQUEST LANGUAGE

SAMPLE BEQUEST LANGUAGE

A gift to 10/40 Connections in your will or revocable trust proclaims your confidence that we will continue to serve our mission and make a difference in the lives of future generations. A bequest:

  • Is easy to arrange.
  • Will not alter your current lifestyle in any way.
  • Can be easily modified to address your changing needs.

RESIDUAL BEQUEST LANGUAGE

A residual bequest comes to us after your estate expenses and specific bequests are paid:

I give and devise to 10/40 Connections, located in Chattanooga, TN, all (or state a percentage) of the rest, residue and remainder of my estate, both real and personal, to be used for its general support (or for the support of a specific fund or program).

SPECIFIC BEQUEST LANGUAGE

Naming 10/40 Connections as a beneficiary of a specific amount from your estate is easy:

I give and devise to 10/40 Connections, located in Chattanooga, TN, the sum of $___________ to be used for its general support (or for the support of a specific fund or program).

CONTINGENT BEQUEST LANGUAGE

10/40 Connections or its affiliates can be named as a contingent beneficiary in your will or personal trust if one or more of your specific bequests cannot be fulfilled:

If (insert name) is not living at the time of my demise, I give and devise to 10/40 Connections, located in Chattanooga, TN, the sum of $ _________ (or all or a percentage of the residue of my estate) to be used for its general support (or for the support of a specific fund or program).

RETIREMENT PLAN BENEFICIARY LANGUAGE

You may name 10/40 Connections as a beneficiary of your IRA or other qualified retirement benefits. Donors should consult with their tax advisor regarding the tax benefits of such gifts.

Naming 10/40 Connections as the beneficiary of a qualified retirement plan asset such as a 401(k), 403(b), IRA, Keogh or profit sharing pension plan will accomplish a charitable goal while realizing significant tax savings. It can be costly to pass such assets on to heirs because of heavy tax consequences. By naming 10/40 Connections as a beneficiary of a retirement plan, the donor maintains complete control over the asset while living, but at the donor’s death the plan passes to support 10/40 Connections free of both estate and income taxes.

Making a charitable gift from your retirement plan is easy and should not cost you any attorney fees. Simply request a change of beneficiary form from your plan administrator. When you are done, please return the form to your plan administrator and notify 10/40 Connections. We can also assist you with the proper language for your beneficiary designation to 10/40 Connections.

CUSTOMIZED LANGUAGE

If you or your attorney would like 10/40 Connections to provide you with customized beneficiary language that is specific to your goal and interest, please contact us.
