Bequests and other Planned Gifts
How Do Planned Gifts Work?
Planned gifts, also called legacy gifts or deferred gifts, come in all shapes and sizes. You can choose to to use a simple bequest, gift of stock, etc. or a more structured giving vehicles that requires an advisor (remainder unitrusts, lead trusts …).
A Bequest is a gift made through a will or a living trust. It’s the most popular planned gift; the easiest to make; and costs nothing during a donor’s lifetime. A Bequest can be included in a new will, or added to an existing will or living trust through a simple amendment called a codicil — often without the expense of hiring a lawyer.
A Bequest is usually a set dollar amount or percentage of an estate that goes to Homes First as a legacy gift after the donor’s death.
