Choices To Consider With A Gift of a Bequest In Your Will
When you include a gift to Spectrum Generations in your will, you help ensure our mission of serving seniors and disabled adults across Central Maine while creating powerful benefits for yourself. You can make a charitable bequest for a specific dollar amount or for a percentage of your estate. And you can direct your charitable bequest to be used for a specific purpose or that it be used in the most beneficial way for Spectrum Generations.
Benefits That Come With a Gift of a Bequest In Your Will
A bequest offers key benefits to you as a donor:
- Flexible: Because a charitable bequest comes after your lifetime, you can change your mind should conditions change
- Advantageous: You may receive a charitable estate tax deduction that excludes the amount of your bequest from your taxable estate
- Versatile: Your bequest can be for a specified dollar amount or a percentage of your estate's value and you can direct your gift to be used for general or specific purposes
- Significant: Because the charitable bequest comes after your lifetime, you can make a significant gift without affecting your current income or cash flow
