Planned Giving / Bequests
One of the simplest planned gifts is a bequest through your will in which you designate either a specific dollar amount or a percentage of your estate after other disbursements.
Making a gift by bequest to Shepherds College can be as simple as inserting a paragraph into your will. See the sample language below.
“I give, devise, and bequeath to Shepherds Baptist Ministries located at 1805 15th Avenue, Union Grove, WI 53182 and federal tax ID 39-0988997, or its successors in interest, exclusive of my lifetime giving, if any, the sum of $_____ to be used for its general purposes at the sole discretion of its trustees.”
Your attorney can change this to a percentage of your residual estate or a specific asset, or to specify a particular program. Please have them contact us with any questions.
