Planned Giving to the Children’s
Nature Retreat Foundation (CNRF)
Bequest in a Will or Trust
A bequest – a gift through your will or living trust – is the most common method of deferred charitable giving.
Through a bequest, you can direct specific assets, your entire estate or a percentage of your estate to The Children’s Nature Retreat Foundation. A specific bequest is the most basic type of bequest – it simply designates a fixed-dollar amount or specific property to a beneficiary. A residuary bequest designates that all or a certain percentage of your estate go to a beneficiary. Finally, you might also choose to make a contingent bequest – a bequest that is only carried out under certain circumstances. For example, if all other beneficiaries are deceased, the Foundation is a contingent beneficiary.
Bequest to CNRF in a Will or Trust
It is important to work with an attorney to draft or amend your will because it is a legal document. We are available to work with you and your attorney to ensure your gift is directed to the purposes most important to you.
