If you’re interested in helping the Dumb Friends League with our mission but want to preserve your assets during your lifetime, consider making a bequest to us in your will or living trust.

This simple and versatile form of planned giving, known as a charitable bequest, will ensure we can continue our work for years to come. Your bequest also entitles your estate to an unlimited federal estate tax charitable deduction.

Check Out This Potential Scenario

Young family with kidsWhen Tom and Martha got married, they made a point to put together a will to protect their assets. They both loved the League and decided to include a bequest of $75,000 to us in their will.

As Tom and Martha's family grew to include three children, they decided to revise their gift to ensure their children's future financial security. They met with their attorney and simply revised the bequest language so that their gift to the League was now a percentage of their estate instead of a specific amount. Tom and Martha now rest easy knowing when they die, their plans will provide for the people and charitable work they love.
