An Example of How It Works
When Tom and Martha got married, they made a point to put together a will to protect their assets. They both loved Empire State College and decided to include a bequest of $20,000 to us in their will.
As their family grew to include three children, they decided to revise their gift to ensure their children's financial security. They met with their attorney and simply revised the bequest language so that their gift to the Foundation is now a percentage of their estate instead of a specific amount. Tom and Martha rest easy knowing that their estate plans will provide for the people and charitable work they love.
