Over the years, bequests and other testamentary gifts have played a major role in the development of non-profit organizations, as these popular gifts are often the most realistic way for many people to make a substantial gift to our cause. Unrestricted bequests enable Compassion & Choices Arizona to direct your gift to an area of our organization where it will have the most impact; however, you may also specify the area you would like to support by making a restricted bequest. Whichever you choose, your bequest may be made in a variety of forms, including:
- Fixed Amount or Percentage of Estate. These gifts provide Compassion & Choices Arizona with a predetermined amount or percentage of your estate. Percentage bequests are often preferred because they don't have to be altered as the size of your estate changes, or to adjust for inflation.
- Personal and Real Property. You may support Compassion & Choices Arizona by leaving a specific asset such as a parcel of land, your home or summer residence, a work of art, jewelry, a retirement account, or securities.
- Residual. With a residual bequest, Compassion & Choices Arizona receives a specific percentage share or the remainder of your estate after heirs are provided for and all expenses and debts are paid.
- How to Make a Bequest to Compassion & Choices Arizona. A bequest can easily be established by having your attorney write an amendment to your current will. If you are writing a will, we urge you to consult your attorney or your financial advisor about specific language in accordance with your wishes.
