A bequest gift is one of the easiest and most beneficial means of assuring that your family and loved ones are provided for and at the same time supporting your favorite charities… such as the Sisters of Mercy. A will is essential to carrying out your wishes.
A gift by will is one of the easiest and most effective means of ensuring that your family and friends are fully provided for by your estate. Your will can specify that after family and friends have been taken care of the remainder of your estate can be distributed to a charity, such as the Sisters of Mercy. Another option is to specify that the Sisters of Mercy receive a predetermined fixed gift.
Those who already have a will can easily amend them through a simple legal transaction known as a "codicil". A codicil must be signed and witnesses in accordance with the laws of your state, but it provides an easy vehicle for your legal professional to include the Sisters of Mercy as a beneficiary of your estate.
Whatever type of bequest you wish to make, a will is essential, as a will ensures that your wishes are explained, documented and clearly understood. Otherwise a court will make those decisions after your death.
