There are several different ways to include Feeding Pets of the Homeless as a beneficiary of your will or trust. Here are some examples of suggested language. Please feel free to adapt this language with your attorney to fit your individual situation.
Residual Gift Language
A residual bequest comes to us after your estate expenses and specific bequests are paid:
I give and devise to the Feeding Pets of the Homeless, located in Carson City, Nevada, all (or state a percentage) of the rest, residue, and remainder of my estate, both real and personal, to be used for its general support (or for the support of a specific program).
Specific Gift Language
Naming Feeding Pets of the Homeless as a beneficiary of a specific amount or percentage of your estate is easy:
I give and devise to Feeding Pets of the Homeless, located in Carson City, Nevada, the sum of $___________ (%) to be used for its general support (or for the support of a specific program).
Contingent Gift Language
Feeding Pets of the Homeless can be named as a contingent beneficiary in your will or personal trust if one or more of your specific bequests cannot be fulfilled:
If (insert name) is not living at the time of my demise, I give and devise to Feeding Pets of the Homeless, located in Carson City, Nevada, the sum of $ _______ (or all or a percentage of the residue of my estate) to be used for its general support (or for the support of a specific program).
Retirement Plan Beneficiary Language
You may name Feeding Pets of the Homeless as a beneficiary of your IRA or other qualified retirement benefits. Donors should consult with their tax advisor regarding the tax benefits of such gifts.
Naming the nonprofit as the beneficiary of a qualified retirement plan asset such as a 401(k), 403(b), IRA, Keogh or profit-sharing pension plan will accomplish a charitable goal while realizing significant tax savings. It can be costly to pass such assets on to heirs because of heavy tax consequences. By naming Feeding Pets of the Homeless as a beneficiary of a retirement plan, the donor maintains complete control over the asset while living, but at the donor’s death the plan passes to support the nonprofit free of both estate and income taxes.
Making a charitable gift from your retirement plan is easy and should not cost you any attorney fees. Simply request a change-of-beneficiary form from your plan administrator. Then, enter the Feeding Pets of the Homeless (Tax id # 26-3010540) on the form with the percent you would like us to receive. When you have finished, please return the form to your plan administrator and notify Feeding Pets of the Homeless.
