Remembering Us in Your Will
Please consider the deferred gifts presented on our website. And keep in mind that one of the simplest ways for you to make a future contribution to the Bogart Pediatric Cancer Research Program is through your will.
In your will you can name us a beneficiary, gibing you many choices.
- One possibility is a bequest of a fixed dollar amount. Another is to give us a percentage of the estate, which allows you to keep the division of the estate residue in desired proportions, regardless of its size.
- Your gift can be contingent—that is, the funds would go to a certain individual if that person survives you. If not, they would be paid to us. Often a better alternative is to create a trust through your will, which will pay income to the individual for life, with the remaining principal to be given to us thereafter.
- Usually a gift without restrictions is most useful, because it allows us to apply the funds to our most pressing needs. You also have the right in your will to specify how the funds are to be used.
- One of the nicest things you can do is to make your gift in memory of someone—either yourself or a person you’ve loved or admired.
