Bequests: All bequests of specific assets are fully deductible for estate tax purposes. These bequests should be outlined in your will as follows:
- Unrestricted bequests of Specific Assets: The standard legal wording for this type of bequest is as follows:“I give, devise and bequeath to National Association of women Artists, Inc. of New York, New York 10018, the sum of $ ____________ (or property described) for its general purposes”.
- Unrestricted Bequest of a Percentage of Your Estate: This will ensure that NAWA will receive a percentage of your eventual estate, even if the nature and disposition of your assets change and grow over the years. The proper wording is as follows:
“I give, devise and bequeath (percent) of the rest, residue and remainder of my estate to National Association of women Artists, Inc. of New York, New York , 10018, for its general purposes.”
An unrequested bequest allows NAWA the greatest flexibility; however, bequests for a purpose of special interest to the donor are also most welcome.
With a gift of $10,000.00 or more, a permanent named endowment fund can be established. To make a restricted bequest to NAWA you would use the same standard language shown above and simply substitute the designated purpose in place of the words “for its general purposes.”
If you’ve already made a bequest to NAWA please let us know so we can thank you and honor your wishes. Contact Susan Hammond, Executive Director, at 212-675-1616.
