Including MCCH in your will via a bequest is a simple way to make a significant impact in the lives of those who have experienced homelessness.
- You can make a cash bequest by designating a specific dollar amount or percentage of assets for MCCH in your will.
- You can make a retirement bequest by listing MCCH as the beneficiary of your retirement plan including IRAs, 401(k)s, tax-sheltered annuities, qualified pension plans, profit-sharing plan, or life insurance policy.
Here is some simple suggested bequest language you can use in your will:
- Residual Bequest Language
A residual bequest comes to us after your estate expenses and specific bequests are paid:
I hereby give and bequeath to Montgomery County Coalition for the Homeless, located at 600 E. Gude Dr., Rockville, MD, TIN: 52-1735674, ____% of the residue of my estate, to be used for its general purposes.
- Specific Bequest Language
Naming MCCH as a beneficiary of a specific amount from your estate is easy:
I hereby give and bequeath to Montgomery County Coalition for the Homeless, located at 600 E. Gude Dr., Rockville, MD, TIN: 52-1735674 the sum of $___________ for its unrestricted charitable use and purpose.
