A bequest is a donation of cash, personal property, or real estate provided in the donor’s will. The gift is most often made as a specific amount, a percentage, or a remainder amount, and can be as easy to establish as adding the following sentence to your Will:
“I devise and bequeath to The Miquon School, Conshohocken, Pennsylvania, [dollar amount of gift, or the word ‘all’, or a percentage of the estate] to be used for its general purposes ( or endowment, a specific program, etc..).”
The Miquon School can be named as the sole or partial beneficiary in your retirement plans such as IRAs, 401 (k) plans and 403 (b) plans. By naming Miquon as a beneficiary of your retirement plans, you may be able to avoid both income and estate tax, allowing you to leave your lower-taxed assets to your family. Your retirement plan administrators can provide you with the necessary information and forms to include The Miquon School in your retirement plans.
