Gift through Your Will

Leave a legacy with a bequest in your will. We know that family comes first in planning for the future. However, a simple directive in your will, called a charitable bequest, can bring enduring support by making a lasting contribution to CCM’s work without affecting your current financial security and freedom.

Benefits of bequests:

  • they are straightforward to arrange
  • they reduce your final assets subject to taxation
  • they require no immediate out-of-pocket cost to you.


In addition to the variety of assets that can be used to make a bequest, there are also different ways to structure your bequest. These options include the following:

Choose One That Suits You

  • Specific Bequest: CCM receives a specified dollar amount or specified assets, such as securities, real estate, or tangible personal property.
  • Residual Bequest: CCM would receive all or a percentage of the remainder of an estate after specified amounts bequeathed to other beneficiaries are distributed and estate-related expenses are paid.
  • Contingent Bequest: CCM would receive a gift if another named beneficiary predeceases you.

Seek Legal Counsel

Legal advice is essential in drafting or changing your will. Since a will reflects your deepest wishes, it should be carefully constructed to accomplish exactly what you desire.
