Wills and Living Trusts
Sample bequest language for your attorney:
"I give [_____% of my estate] [the residue of my estate] [_____% of the residue of my estate] [$______________] to KQED Inc., a California nonprofit public benefit corporation. KQED's primary office is located at 2601 Mariposa Street, San Francisco, CA 94110."
KQED's Federal Tax I.D. Number is: 94-1241309
KQED's legal name is: "KQED Inc."
You can make a gift (bequest) to a charitable organization through your will or living trust in the following ways:
- A percentage of your total estate — In using this approach, your gift adjusts with changes in the size of your estate.
- The residue or a percentage of the residue of your estate
- After your specific gifts to loved ones have been made, you may designate that the entire residue or a percentage of the remainder shall go to one or more charitable organizations. With this approach, as well, your gift adjusts with changes in the size of your estate.
- A gift of a specific amount - You specify a dollar amount to be given to one or more charitable organizations. With this kind of gift, it is especially important to keep your will or trust up-to-date.

"KQED provides education, information and entertainment to people from all walks of life; it is crucial to a thriving democracy. That's why I've made an endowment gift in my living trust. I'm delighted that my gift will one day extend my support far beyond the annual gifts I make to KQED today."
