Bequests to Catholic Charities

Bequests to Catholic Charities

The most common way to include Catholic Charities in a will or living trust is through a charitable bequest. Instead of rewriting your current documents, you simply add an amendment (called a codicil) to your will or living trust. Here is some suggested language you can have your attorney review:

“I give devise and bequeath to Catholic Charities (tax I.D. 94-1498472), located in San Francisco, California, the sum of ________________________________ dollars ($ _______________) (or state a percentage of your estate, or state a percentage of your estate, or describe real or personal property, including exact location) for the benefit of its general purposes (or specify the Catholic Charities program you wish to support).
