Your Legacy Matters...

Planned Giving

Many people think that because they don't own enough property, they don't need a will. But when you add up all of the assets that you own, your estate may be larger than you think.

HOW CAN A WILL HELP YOU?

• A will can help you decide who will receive your property.
• You can appoint a guardian for your minor children in your will.
• A will allows you to appoint an executor to administer your estate.
• A will can help reduce taxes for your heirs and your estate.

  • Reduce the burden of taxes on your family
  • Leave a lasting legacy to charity

How a bequest works

A bequest is one of the easiest gifts to make. With the help of an attorney, you can include language in your will or trust specifying a gift to be made to family, friends or Coe College as part of your estate plan, or you can make a bequest using a beneficiary designation form.

Here are some of the ways to leave a bequest to Coe College

A bequest may be made in several ways

  • Percentage bequest - make a gift of a percentage of your estate
  • Specific bequest - make a gift of a specific dollar amount or a specific asset
  • Residual bequest - make a gift from the balance or residue of your estate
