Wills and Living Trusts

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.

About KQED Inc.'s former legal name, Northern California Public Broadcasting (NCPB)

Caitlin Croughan
Former Member of the KQED Board of Directors and Jonathan C. Rice Legacy Society

"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."
