Gift in Your Will or Living Trust
Deepen Your Connections
You want to leave money to Catholic Community Services and Catholic Housing Services of Western Washington in your will. You also want the flexibility to change your will in the event that life circumstances change. You can do both.
In as little as one sentence, you can complete your gift. This type of donation to CCS/CHS in your will or living trust helps ensure that we continue our mission for years to come.
Suggested bequest language to share with your attorney:
I give, devise, and bequeath to Catholic Community Services of Western Washington (tax ID #91-1585652) and/or Catholic Housing Services of Western Washington (tax ID #91-1099134), both organizations conducting business at 100 23rd Avenue South, Seattle, Washington, 98144, the sum of $______ (or) ______% of my estate (or property described herein) (or) the residual amount of my estate.
If you wish, you may designate a specific program or service area of CCS/CHS.
An Example of How It Works
Meet Tom and Martha. When they got married and created a will, they included a $75,000 gift to CCS/CHS. As the family grew to include three children, Tom and Martha decided to revise their gift to ensure their children's future financial security.
They met with their attorney and revised the gift language so that CCS/CHS received a percentage of their estate, instead of a specific amount. Tom and Martha now rest easy knowing their plans will provide for the people and charitable work they love.
