Gifts of Closely Held Stock in Your Will or Trust: Getting Started
If you've thought about making a gift to Doernbecher Children's Hospital Foundation but aren't
ready to give up your assets today, consider leaving a gift of closely held stock
to us after your lifetime through your will or revocable living trust.
This methodcalled a bequestallows you the flexibility to change your mind at any time since your gift isn't actually complete until after your lifetime. Plus, if your estate will be subject to estate taxes, this gift entitles your estate to a federal estate tax charitable deduction for the full value of the property, reducing any estate taxes owed upon death.
How It Works
As mentioned, you can give the property to us through your will or revocable living trust with the help of your attorney.
Thank you for considering a gift to Doernbecher through your will or revocable living trust.
It is important that the bequest designation read "Doernbecher Children's Hospital Foundation." The foundation has been established to receive, manage, and disperse funds in the best way possible for the benefit of Doernbecher Children's Hospital.
Basic Sample Bequest Language

How You Benefit
Making a bequest of securities offers these benefits:
- Simplicity. Just a few sentences in your will or trust are all that is needed to complete your gift.
- Control. You remain in control of your closely held stock during your lifetime.
- Flexibility. Because you are not actually making a gift until after your lifetime, you can change your mind at any time.
- Tax relief. The gift entitles your estate to a charitable estate tax deduction, reducing the amount of federal estate taxes your estate may owe the IRS.
