BEQUESTS

A charitable bequest is one of the easiest and most flexible ways that you can leave a gift to the Texas Conference Association of Seventh-day Adventist that will make a lasting impact.

WHAT IS A BEQUEST?

A bequest is a gift given through a Will or a Trust.  We can help you prepare either, or you can ask your own attorney to prepare them for you.

  1. You can give a gift a specific dollar amount or a specific assets

  2. You can give a gift of a percentage of what’s left from your estate after all expenses are paid, and any specific dollars amounts or assets are given

  3.
