What issues should you think about when structuring a bequest?

Many people ask the Community Foundation to help them build their charitable legacies. For those wishing to structure a bequest or other type of fund meant to last for generations, we offer a host of options and steward their legacies in line with their philanthropic intent. These gifts allow us to identify projects and encourage current donors to join us in confronting challenges in the community (such as human trafficking, Hurricane Sandy recovery, and juvenile justice reform).
