Wills & Bequests

The most common method of giving is to make a bequest through your will. There are three types of bequests for you to consider: specific gifts, residual or “percentage of the estate” gifts, or contingent gifts.

Specific gifts are dollar amounts or tangible property which you specifically want Hospice East Bay to receive from your estate. (sample language)

Residual or percentage gifts are distributed after specific gifts to relatives or friends have been allocated. You can designate that the remainder, or a percentage of the remainder, of your estate be given to Hospice East Bay. (sample language)

Contingent gifts occur when one or more of the beneficiaries in the will are no longer alive to receive their gift from the estate. (sample language)


Donor Designations

You can designate all or part of your retirement plan, IRA, or insurance policy to be donated to Hospice East Bay. These gifts are easy to execute and do not require changing your will. Simply name Hospice East Bay as a beneficiary of your plan or policy.


Charitable Annuities

A charitable annuity is a contract between you and a third party, usually an insurance company. Purchasing an annuity contract enables you to receive a yearly income and an immediate tax deduction. At the end of the contract, Hospice East Bay receives the remainder of the annuity.


Charitable Trusts

A charitable trust allows you to minimize your taxes on appreciated assets while creating a steady stream of income. With a charitable remainder trust, your designated beneficiaries receive the income, while Hospice East Bay receives the remainder. With a charitable lead trust, Hospice East Bay receives the income, while your designated beneficiaries receive the remainder.
