You may contribute to helping speed research for treatments for Prader-Willi Syndrome through a gift in your will or other estate plans. Such gifts are easy to establish and may reduce the estate taxes that may be levied against your property. This charitable deduction can greatly reduce the cost of making a bequest. Although legal consultation is always advisable before designing any type of will provision, you should know that a bequest may be simply stated as follows:
“I give and bequeath to the trustees of The Foundation for Prader-Willi Research _________% of my total estate (or $___________).”
If the trustees of the Foundation determine at any time that a bequest cannot be used as it was originally intended, they will apply the proceeds to a purpose that most closely resembles the donor’s intention. Providing such a provision in your will creates an unrestricted bequest, which assures that your gift, will be used where it is most needed.
