Ways to Make a Gift
A carefully prepared will or estate plan is the best way to ensure that your loved ones are provided for after your death, and that your preferred charities are supported as you intend. They allow you to retain full use of your assets during your lifetime and still make a significant gift for Florida Christian College . They are technical documents that should therefore be drafted by an attorney, but they may be revised and updated whenever you like, as your wishes and circumstances change.
Please contact Bill Behrman (407-569-1164) for assistance with a will or an estate plan. He can help you organize your information and provide you with materials to record your wishes. You may also email Bill Behrman.
By far, the most common means of making a charitable gift is through a personal trust or will. It's no wonder: such gifts allow you to contribute to Florida Christian College at a level you might never have managed during your lifetime. Your bequest can take a variety of forms. Here are a few samples for you to consider:
Specific Bequest — The most popular type of charitable bequest, a specific bequest provides that Florida Christian College receives a specific dollar amount, percentage of your estate, or piece of property.
Residuary Bequest — A residuary bequest provides that Florida Christian College receives all or a stated portion of your estate after all other bequests, debts, taxes, and expenses have been distributed.
Contingent Bequest — A contingent bequest can ensure that if circumstances make it impossible to carry out your primary provisions (as when your spouse or other heirs do not survive you), your assets will then pass to Florida Christian College rather than to unintended beneficiaries.
Trust Under Will — You can bequeath a portion of your estate to be held in trust for a specified purpose, as stated in your will.
