Bequests by Will or Trust | Wolf Trap

Bequests by Will or Trust

A simple yet special statement, a bequest allocates a percentage of your estate or a specific dollar amount to a favorite nonprofit organization, enabling you to:

  •  Maintain complete flexibility and control of your assets during your lifetime
  •  Provide clear instructions of your wishes
  •  Establish a personal legacy of future support

Your bequest language can be brief.

Sample bequest language:

“I devise and bequeath [X% of my estate or residue] OR [$____ specific dollar amount] to the Wolf Trap Foundation for the Performing Arts, Vienna, Virginia, Tax ID #23-7011544.”

By including Wolf Trap Foundation in your estate plan, your powerful statement helps assure that, like you, future generations will be enriched by the unparalleled Wolf Trap experience. Thank you!
