A Gift in Your Will
A charitable bequest is a simple instruction that part of your estate will go to a designated charitable organization like Windwood Family Services. This type of gift can take many forms. You can leave a specific amount of money or a specific property such as stocks or bonds, a percentage of your estate, or what remains of your estate after you have provided for others (for example, your spouse, children, or grandchildren.) You can change any bequest provision during your life, which means you remain in complete control of the process.
If you already have a will, you can include or update a bequest to Windwood Family Services through a simple codicil, without the need for executing a new will. A codicil is simply an amendment or addition to your will. It is commonly used to add bequests to those already included in your will. Speak with your attorney regarding any change to your will or estate documents.
Gifts of retirement account assets such as IRAs
Retirement account assets left to loved ones may be subject to higher taxation than other types of assets. By making Windwood Family Services a beneficiary, in full or in part, you may reduce taxes that otherwise would be passed to your loved ones. Adding charity as a beneficiary is usually as simple as completing a form provided by the account custodian.
