Making Bequests

Legacy gifts, or gifts provided through wills and personal trusts, are a traditional part of philanthropic giving. Such gifts enable you to make significant contributions that may not have been possible during your lifetime — and there are plenty of tax benefits for you and your family as well.

A bequest to Good Samaritan Foundation, Mary Bridge Children’s Foundation, MultiCare Health Foundation or South King County Health Foundation made through a provision in your will or revocable trust:

        • Is easy to arrange.
        • Will not alter your current lifestyle in any way.
        • Can be easily modified throughout your lifetime to address your changing needs.

There are a variety of ways to make a legacy gift. Sample bequest language is offered below for your attorney or legal advisor’s consideration in preparing your will or trust. We invite you to contact Scott Claeys at 253.403.1289 or scott.claeys@multicare.org for additional assistance as you prepare your legacy gift.

Specific Bequest
This is one of the most popular forms of a charitable bequest. Simply designate that Mary Bridge Children’s Foundation, Good Samaritan Foundation, MultiCare Health Foundation or South King County Health Foundation receives a specific dollar amount, percentage of your estate or an in-kind gift like a piece of property.

Specific Bequest Language Example 
I give and devise to Good Samaritan Foundation and/or Mary Bridge Children’s Foundation and/or MultiCare Health Foundation and/or South King Health Foundation the sum of $__________ dollars (or state percentage of estate) to be held, administered, and used for support of Good Samaritan Foundation and/or Mary Bridge Children’s Foundation and/or MultiCare Health Foundation and/or South King Health Foundation where the need is greatest (or designated to your cause or program of choice).

Residuary Bequest
A residuary bequest is used to give Good Samaritan Foundation, Mary Bridge Children’s Foundation, MultiCare Health Foundation or South King County Health Foundation all or a portion of your property after all debts, taxes, expenses and other beneficiaries have been paid.
 
Residuary Bequest Language Example
I give and devise to Good Samaritan Foundation and/or Mary Bridge Children’s Foundation and/or MultiCare Health Foundation and/or South King Health Foundation all (or state percentage) of the rest, residue, and remainder of my estate, both real and personal, to be held, administered, and used for support of Good Samaritan Foundation and/or Mary Bridge Children’s Foundation and/or MultiCare Health Foundation and/or South King Health Foundation where the need is greatest (or designated to your cause or program of choice).

Contingent Bequest
A contingent bequest enables you to name Good Samaritan Foundation, Mary Bridge Children’s Foundation, MultiCare Health Foundation or South King Health Foundation as an alternate beneficiary of all or of a portion of your estate, which means the foundation(s) will receive the bequest only if your primary beneficiary or beneficiaries do not survive you.

Contingent Bequest Language Example
If ________ is not living at the time of my death, I give to Good Samaritan Foundation and/or Mary Bridge Children’s Foundation and/or MultiCare Health Foundation and/or South King Health Foundation, [the sum of $________/ the residue of my estate/ ______% of the residue of my estate] to be used where the need is greatest (or designated to your cause or program of choice).
