Wills and Bequests
A bequest is the most common way for donors to make a planned gift to the Providence General Foundation. Wills and revocable living trusts are estate planning tools that allow you to determine in advance who will receive your personal property after your death. There are often tax considerations that can affect the provisions of your will or living trust. Using a will gives you the opportunity to provide not only for your family and friends, but also for charity. Besides cash, you may also leave stocks, bonds and other types of property to charity. To include Providence General Foundation in your will or living trust, please consult with your attorney. They will make sure it is a proper legal statement of how you wish your possessions to be distributed.
