Bequests to the WHAS Crusade for Children

The WHAS Crusade for Children 1954 Society, named to recognize the year the WHAS Crusade for Children was founded, recognizes those who have designated a gift by will or bequest to the WHAS Crusade for Children.

You can make an unrestricted gift, or you can restrict the use of your gift to a purpose that you designate. An unrestricted charitable bequest provides funds that the Crusade uses for its general purposes. This type of bequest can be of greatest use because it allows the charity to determine the areas of greatest need. If you choose to make a restricted bequest, it is best to work with the Crusade in advance, so that there is assurance that we will be able to comply with the restriction.

WHICH GIFT OPTION IS BEST FOR YOU?

BEQUESTS

Making a bequest (a gift made in your will or living trust) is a powerful way to impact the lives of thousands of children for years to come. Bequests can be a specific amount, percentage or remainder of assets. While we advise legal consultation, sample language for a bequest includes: I give and bequeath to the WHAS Crusade for Children ______% of my total estate (or $_____).
