This is a common way for you to leave a legacy, and is a meaningful and simple way for you to support our work. In your will you designate a specific amount of money, a percentage of your estate, or a specific asset. You can easily create a bequest that helps us after you have provided for your family and friends, this is called a “residual bequest”. The Out Alliance can also be named as a contingent beneficiary.
If you’re ready to leave a bequest to us it’s important to include our correct legal name and address in the bequest papers. You will also need our federal tax ID number, which is 161066400.
Here is an example of the language you could use: “I hereby give, devise, and bequeath to the Out Alliance of the Genesee Valley, a nonprofit New York State corporation with it’s principal office at 875 E. Main St. Suite 500 Rochester NY 14605 the rest, residue, and remainder of my estate as an unrestricted gift to be used in the area of greatest need at the time the gift is received.”
