Ways of Giving

Bequest Planning

After first providing for loved ones, your will or living trust is a wonderful way to make gifts that support the work of NSDAR. A gift made by will or living trust (also known as a bequest) is accomplished through a simple provision in a new will or trust, or through an amendment of your current plans. Such gifts may be arranged in a number of ways:

  • Provide a gift of a specific amount
  • Direct a gift of a certain property, such as securities, real estate, or other items of value
  • Designate that a percentage of your estate be given
  • Give what remains after gifts to loved ones are fulfilled
  • Name NSDAR to receive a bequest if other heirs do not survive you

Another option is to create a trust as part of your estate plan that will first provide income to a loved one, with an eventual gift to NSDAR after that person's lifetime or another period of time you determine.

If you plan to include a gift to NSDAR through your will or other plans mentioned, it is important that your advisors use our correct legal name: National Society Daughters of the American Revolution (NSDAR).

Here is sample language that can be used to include NSDAR in your will:
"I give, devise, and bequeath to the National Society Daughters of the American Revolution (NSDAR), 1776 D Street NW, Washington, D.C., 20006-5303, a charitable corporation created by Act of Congress of the United States (Tax ID# 53-0205923), ___% of the residue of my estate (or the sum of $____)."

If you already have a will, your attorney can prepare a simple codicil to include a bequest to NSDAR.
