Writing a Bequest

Bequests, trusts, wills, estates or charitable giving instruments are tools to continue or establish your legacy of caring, forever.

Once you are sure you have enough money to live comfortably (and arranged for any gifts for family and special people), you may find joy in planning a future charitable gift to forever benefit the New Haven Lawn Club by supporting the important mission of the New Haven Lawn Club Preservation Trust.

With a bequest, you will forever be supporting the club that meant so much to you.

It is easy to make a charitable bequest through a provision in one's will or trust. You may leave a bequest of a specific cash amount, a percentage of your estate, or the remainder of your estate.

Sample Language:

I give $___________ (or specified property) or _____% of the residue of my estate to the New Haven Lawn Club Preservation Trust as an unrestricted gift.
