A Planned Gift
We hope you’ll consider including a gift to Denver Urban Matters in your will or living trust. Called a charitable bequest, this type of gift offers these main benefits:
- Simplicity: Just a few sentences in your will or trust are all that is needed. Share this sample bequest language for Denver Urban Matters with your estate planning attorney:
I, [your name], of [city, state, zip], give, devise and bequest to Denver Urban Matters
[written amount or percentage of the estate or description of the property] for its unrestricted use and purpose.”
- Flexibility: Because you are not actually making a gift until after your lifetime, you can change your mind at any time.
- Versatility: You can structure the bequest to leave a specific item or amount of money, make the gift contingent on certain events, or leave a percentage of your estate to us.
- Tax Relief: If you estate is subject to estate tax, your gift is entitled to an estate tax charitable deduction for the gift’s full value.
