Bequests are a great option for those looking to give significant financial impact to Youth-Reach Gulf Coast (YRGC). A bequest is a gift made through your will or trust. It is one of the most popular and flexible ways that you can support the ministry of Youth-Reach Gulf Coast.

What are the benefits of making a bequest?

  • Donors create a lasting legacy at YRGC that will be remembered for generations.
  • Estates can avoid some estate tax on cash as well as non-cash assets like real estate, stocks, vehicles and more.
  • Charitable bequests are conveniently simple to write into a will and easy to update.
  • Bequests can help simplify the settling of an estate.

How does a bequest work?

A bequest is one of the easiest gifts to make. With the help of an advisor, you can include language in your will or trust specifying a gift be made to family, friends or YRGC as part of your estate plan.

A bequest can be made in several ways:
  1. You can gift a specific dollar amount or asset.
  2. You can gift a percentage of your estate.
  3. You can gift from the balance or residue of your estate.
  4. You can make a beneficiary designation of certain assets.

We want to make sure your bequest has as much impact as possible. When you make a bequest and designate YRGC as the beneficiary, make sure to inform us of your intention so we can ensure the use of it as you intend.
