Bequest Language

Planning for the future and creating the  legacy you wish to leave is one of the most effective ways to ensure a  lasting impact. Making a gift in your will or living trust, known as a  bequest, can guarantee that your legacy endures. Your gift may be a  specific dollar amount, a percentage of your estate or the remainder  after all other provisions are specified.

Our federal tax ID number is: 83-0287513

Below is suggested language to use when drafting your bequest.

Sample Language

For an unrestricted gift that allows the  Wyoming Community Foundation to determine how to use the funds based on  the most pressing needs, use the following language for your will and/or  trust:

"I give to Wyoming Community Foundation, a nonprofit  corporation currently located at 1472 N. 5th Street, Ste. 201, Laramie,  WY 82072, or its successor thereto, _________ [written amount or  percentage of the estate or description of property] for its  unrestricted charitable use and purpose."

To designate your provision for a particular purpose:

"I give to Wyoming Community Foundation, a nonprofit  corporation currently located at 1472 N. 5th Street, Ste. 201, Laramie,  WY 82072, or its successor thereto, _________ [written amount or  percentage of the estate or description of property]. This gift should  be used for (state purpose) if and so long as Wyoming Community  Foundation determines that the need exists. If Wyoming Community  Foundation shall determine at the outset or at a later time that the  need does not exist, or no longer exists or for some reason it is not  possible (or prudent) to administer my gift as originally intended, then  Wyoming Community Foundation may, in its sole and uncontrolled  discretion, direct the use of my bequest for a purpose related as  closely as possible to that stated above."

If you have named the Wyoming Community Foundation in your will or  trust, please let us know so we can ensure that your gift is used  according to your wishes. Notifying us of your plans will enable us to  plan for the use of your future gift. However, if you prefer to remain  anonymous, we will keep your name and gift in strict confidence.
