Betsy and George want to make a gift to the Livingston HealthCare Foundation, but they are worried that they might need their assets one day to provide for their children or to take care of themselves, later in life. They decide to leave a gift to Livingston HealthCare Foundation through a bequest in their will. This way they retain complete control of their assets but know that a gift will still be made from whatever assets remain in their estate.

Bequests will allow you to:

  • Keep complete control of your assets for all your needs
  • Change any aspect of your gift at any time during your lifetime
  • Fund your gift at the end of life

To support the MISSION of Livingston HealthCare Foundation with a gift through your will or trust, you may use the following verbiage for an unrestricted gift:

Distributions from estates and trusts

All distributions received from a donor’s estate or trust are added to the Endowment Fund of Livingston HealthCare Foundation.
