A charitable bequest is one of the easiest ways you can leave a lasting impact at California Baptist University.
A bequest may be made in your will or trust directing a gift to California Baptist University.
A bequest is one of the easiest gifts to make. With the help of an advisor, you can include language in your will or trust specifying a gift to be made to family, friends or California Baptist University as part of your estate plan.Click Here to review sample bequest language.
A bequest may be made in several ways:
A retirement asset, such as an IRA account, makes an excellent bequest to us. If the IRA were given to your family, much of the value may be lost through estate and income taxes. By designating California Baptist University as the beneficiary of all or part of your IRA (using a beneficiary designation form provided by your custodian), the full value of the gift is transferred tax-free at your death and your estate receives an estate tax charitable deduction.
