The process is surprisingly simple and offers flexibility for changes. Start by discussing it with your family and loved ones, and then consult with your lawyer regarding drafting or revisiting your will or adding a codicil or addendum.

You can choose to fund your for your gift from options that include real estate, stocks, cash, or a portion of your estate. Your estate will be given a charity tax receipt as a result, possibly lowering or completely eliminating estate taxes.

With just one sentence, you can complete your gift and contribute to AFI’s mission for future generations through a donation in your will or living trust.

  • If you wish to primarily leave your funds to your loved ones, you can designate AFI as the beneficiary of a certain amount or percentage of your estate.
  • If you want to ensure that AFI receives the remaining assets after your loved ones have been taken care of, you can make a residuary bequest.
  • If you want to leave your estate to your loved ones, but with a provision in case one of your beneficiaries passes away before you, consider a contingent bequest, commonly used by spouses to ensure that if either spouse is not alive, the designated bequest will be directed to AFI.

Gifts to Nonprofit Organizations

Creating a gift to AFI can be as simple as a single sentence in your will. An example to discuss with your attorney is, “I give ___________ (residue, percentage, or specific amount) to AFI., having its principal offices at ADDRESS, for its general purposes to ameliorate child welfare, education and environmental issues in the Philippines.”
