Include Women's Circle as your Charity in Your Will or Trust. Many charitably-minded people have arranged for a future gift to their favorite charity by remembering that organization in their will or trust. 

If you are in the process of completing or updating your estate documents, and would like to consider a charity or several charities in your planning, you may find the information presented below to be of particular interest.

 A general bequest provides that a specific amount of money, a percentage of your estate or a certain piece of property, be given to charity at the time of your death. For most people, a gift of a percentage of the remaining estate after taxes and debts have been satisfied is the most appropriate use of a general bequest.

A residual bequest designates that the remainder or balance of your estate goes to a deserving charity or charities you respect and support -- after your will or trust has made gifts of money or property to your loved ones.

Women's Circle would like to keep a record of those individuals who have included them in their will or trust so that they can keep the estate updated on important issues and events within the organization.
