I wish to support the retreat center through my will.
You can support The Jesuit Retreat Center 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 leave a percentage of your estate, or describe real or personal property, (including exact location of that property.) A gift can be given for general, unrestricted purposes, or specified for specific programs you wish to support.
Your bequest is entirely under your control during your life. If you have questions about bequests, call Dr. Tom Powers., at 650-917-4049 or email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
