I wish to support the retreat center through my will.
You can support The Jesuit Retreat Center of Los Altos in a will or living trust through a charitable bequest. You do not have to rewrite your current documents. You simply add an amendment, called a codicil, to your will or living trust. Here is some suggested language you can have your attorney review:
I give devise and bequeath to The Jesuit Retreat Center of Los Altos (tax I.D. 94-1230997), located in Los Altos, California, the sum of ________________________________ dollars ($ _______________)
Or you can state that a percentage of your estate, or describe real or personal property, including exact location of that property) be directed in support of general purposes, or specify The Jesuit Retreat Center of Los Altos program you wish to support.
Your bequest is entirely under your control during your life and becomes irrevocable only at death. If you have questions about bequests, call Dr. Tom Powers., at 650-917-4049 or email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
