Bequests and Wills

Remembering Cardinal McCloskey Community
Services in Your Estate Plans

A bequest is a gift through your will or living trust that costs you nothing now but provides support to us after your lifetime. Bequests offer flexibility and can be structured to fit your personal situation. The gift is revocable, so you can change your mind at any time should your circumstances change.

You can make a bequest of cash, marketable securities, real estate, or personal property such as art or jewelry. Or you can simply give us a percentage of your estate.

Sample Wording

Although legal consultation is advisable before you establish any type of will provision, you can make your gift in as little as one sentence:

"I give and bequeath to Cardinal McCloskey Community Services, 115 East Stevens Ave., Valhalla, NY 10595, federal tax identification number 13-1740443, ___% of my residuary estate (or $___, or other property)."

Please contact us to learn more about variations of how you may direct your support, such as designating your gift for a special purpose or program within the scope of CMCS's mission.
