Making a Bequest in Your Will Can Make a Lasting Difference

“It takes a noble person to plant a seed for a tree that will one day provide shade to those whom he may never meet.” - David Trueblood

A powerful way to leave a legacy is by making a bequest gift. By implementing a few small changes to your will, you have the opportunity to have a lasting impact on those who are suffering the pain and indignity of hunger in the Trenton area.

A charitable bequest is simply a distribution from your estate to a charitable organization through your last will and testament. Your estate is the sum of your assets, including property you own, insurance policies, retirement accounts, savings, cash on hand, etc. Wealthy people have very large estates, but even people who aren’t wealthy often have the resources to make a modest charitable bequest.

Your bequest can be given as a specific sum of money; a percentage of your estate, a gift of particular assets, such as shares of stock in a corporation; or a gift of the remainder of our estate after distribution to loved ones. Below we have provided sample bequest language. We always recommend that you carefully review the terms of your will with a professional trained in handling trusts and estates.

Sample Bequest Language:

“I give the Trenton Area Soup Kitchen located at 72 1/2 Escher Street, Trenton, New Jersey 08605

  • A cash bequest of $_____;
  • A stock bequest of _____ shares of common stock of ___________ Corporation;
  • A percentage (___ %) of my estate;
  • The residue of my estate after other items of the will have been satisfied;
  • I request that this bequest be used by the Trenton Area Soup Kitchen for its general purposes or for the following specific purpose: ______________.

Benefits of Including TASK in your will include:

  • Flexibility to bequeath a specific amount or a percentage of your estate;
  • Maintaining control of your assets during your lifetime;
  • Ability to alter the bequest in the event of life changing circumstance;
  • Possible reduction of estate taxes.
