Bequests in a Will

Bequest in a Will

Perhaps the most common way of making a planned gift is through your will. By making a will, you appoint your own administrator; you name the guardian of your dependents; you control applicable taxes; you can create a family or charitable trust; and you can share your resources with your family, Christ Church, or other charities as you choose.

A bequest to the church in a will can take the form of a set amount of money, a percentage of an estate, a specific asset, a trust, or the naming of Christ Church as a contingent beneficiary.
