Your Bequest to HELP Homeless


Making a Will

No one likes to think about their own death but it is important to make a Will to ensure your assets are distributed according to your wishes. A charitable deduction may also help reduce your estate tax liability. Including a gift to your favourite charity is one way to continue your support.


There are 3 kinds of bequests

1. Specific Bequest - a certain amount of cash, securities, or property.

2. Percentage Bequest - a stated percentage of your estate.

3. Residual (“Remainder”) Bequest - all or a portion of what remains of your estate after specific and general bequests are distributed.

Example Testamentary / Bequest Language

You may find the following words helpful for inclusion in your Will. However, it is important to see your legal advisor before you do so.
For your gift to Backpack Bed for Homeless Inc. we recommend the following wording for your legal adviser's consideration:
"I give _________ dollars ($_______) [and/or the following described property, _______] [and/or _______ percent (______ %) of my residual estate] to Backpack Bed for Homeless Inc, Tax ID #46-5748662."
