Sample Bequest Language

A bequest can be as simple as including the following language in your will:

Unrestricted Gift

I give and bequeath to the TRUSTEES OF CHILDREN’S HEALTH COUNCIL of Palo Alto, California, the sum of $___ (or, ___% of my residuary estate), for such purposes as the Trustees of CHILDREN’S HEALTH COUNCIL shall determine to be in the best interests of the organization.

Restricted Gift

I give and bequeath to the TRUSTEES OF CHILDREN’S HEALTH COUNCIL of Palo Alto, California, the sum of $___ (or, ___% of my residuary estate), to be used for [state the specific purpose, school, or fund].

Even if you have an existing will, you can add an amendment, or codicil, at any time. Since a codicil doesn’t replace the original will, it can be an inexpensive and simple way to make a bequest to CHC.
