A Lasting Gift to Little Bit

There are several types of bequests that allow you to designate how your estate will be distributed.

SPECIFIC BEQUEST:

You describe exactly what you want to leave to a specific individual or organization and the designated source. If you want to leave a specific dollar amount from a specific source or a particular item (such as an antique or collector's item), this is the type of bequest that you would use.

Example: Susan states in her will: "I leave my diamond ring to my daughter, Michelle. I also leave my securities to Little Bit Therapeutic Riding Center."

GENERAL BEQUEST:

This type of bequest does not specify the source from which it should be paid. This gives your executor the flexibility to honor the bequest from any available source.

Example: Susan states in her will: "I leave $50,000 to my grandson, Andrew."

RESIDUARY BEQUEST:

This type of bequest is honored after all other bequests have been made, and all debts, expenses and taxes have been paid.

Example: Susan states in her will: "I give all the rest, residue and remainder of my real and personal estate to Little Bit Therapeutic Riding Center."

CONTINGENT BEQUEST:

This type of bequest is fulfilled if certain conditions are met. For instance, if your primary beneficiary does not survive you, you can indicate your next choice through a contingent designation.

Example: Susan states in her will: "I give all the rest, residue and remainder of my real and personal estate to my husband, James, if he survives me; if not, then 50 percent in equal shares to my children who survive me and 50 percent to Little Bit Therapeutic Riding Center."

GIFTS OF REAL OR TANGIBLE PROPERTY:

Little Bit does not accept gifts of real or tangible property except by vote of the Board of Directors and in accordance with identified and imminent organizational needs. If you wish to leave real or tangible property in your estate plans, please contact the Development Director to ensure we can accommodate your wishes.
