Sample Language for Your Will or Trust

The following language may help you and your attorney when drawing up a bequest that meets your needs.

I give and devise to the Los Angeles LGBT Center, Inc. (Tax ID #95-3567895), located in Los Angeles, CA, the sum of $___________ (or % of estate) (or asset) to be used for its general support (or for the support of a specific fund or program).

If your gift is in support of a specific fund or program you should add this language: It is understood and agreed that should the purpose for which this bequest is instituted cease to exist, then the Los Angeles LGBT Center may devote said bequest for such other uses and purposes as it determines to be in accordance with my original intent in making this gift.

*If you are interested in supporting a specific project or program, it is best to discuss your plans with our planned giving professionals before completing your bequest language to confirm your wishes can be met by the Los Angeles LGBT Center.

Please note: The policies of the Los Angeles LGBT Center do not allow the Center or its representatives to serve as personal representative, executor, trustee, or witness for a will or trust.
