Types of bequests

Below are various kinds of bequests as well as sample language for making a bequest specifically to Phelps  Hospital. We recommend consulting with an attorney to ensure your wishes are accurately reflected in your estate plans.

Specific Bequest: bequeaths a designated dollar amount or certain other property (such as a home, art collection, etc.). Gifts of specific properties may be uniquely appropriate bequests both for tax and other reasons.

Percentage Bequest: bequeaths a set percentage, i.e. 5% of the value of the estate, to the charity. A percentage bequest is a good way to ensure that the charity participates in any estate growth during the donor’s lifetime.

Residual Bequest: bequeaths assets that remain after all other specific bequests, death taxes, and estate expenses have been satisfied. The amount received by the charity would be affected by any change (greater or lower) in the value of the estate over time.

Contingent Bequest: bequeaths property only when those named as primary beneficiaries predecease the testator or if the named beneficiaries refuse the bequest provision.

Sample bequest language

Please note that your will or codicil should refer to the legal name of our organization:

Phelps Memorial Hospital Association.

Below are two examples of the many ways to customize a bequest. Existing wills may also be modified to include Phelps Memorial Hospital Association as a beneficiary with the Tax ID# 13-1725076.
