FORM LANGUAGE FOR USE IN WILLS AND TRUSTS
There are four types of bequests for you to consider. The first, percentage, is most flexible because it allows your gift to appreciate in your will no matter what asset is used. The second, a specific bequest of an asset, such as a retirement plan, results in no income taxes paid on the plan by your estate. The third, residual bequests are often made after remembering relatives and friends, and usually in combination with a percentage bequest. When you place any of these three types of bequest in your will or living trust and notify the PCC Foundation, we will invite you to become a member of the Amo De Bernardis Legacy Society. Legacy Society members are honored at the College and invited to an annual recognition event.
