INFORMATION ON BEQUESTS AND ESTATE PLANNING

Thank you for considering us in your future plans.

What is a bequest?

A bequest is a gift of property under the terms of a will or other estate planning instrument.

This may include cash, publicly traded securities, or other types of real or personal property, such as jewelry, artwork, or real estate.

World Missions Alliance thanks you for including us in your future plans.

We are honored to have your support in our vision of a world where changed lives change lives.

Below is some suggested language to include in your will and/or other estate planning documents for certain types of bequests.

However, regardless of the type of bequest you are considering, we strongly urge you to consult your attorney to learn how best to include a bequest in your estate plan and to understand the tax consequences of making such a gift.

Suggested language:

I hereby give, devise, and bequeath _________ and No/100 dollars ($DOLLARS) to World Missions Alliance, a nonprofit organization located at P.O. Box 1067, Branson West, MO 65737, Federal Tax ID #74-3116216, for World Missions Alliance’s general uses and purpose. Reasonable administrative costs may be charged to this gift.

Unrestricted Endowed Bequest of Cash

Box 1067, Branson West, MO 65737, Federal Tax ID #74-3116216. The property comprising this gift may, for investment purposes, be commingled with any of the investment assets of World Missions Alliance, but the gift shall be entered in World missions Alliance’s books and records as an endowment fund within the meaning of applicable law, which is not wholly expendable on a current basis. The gift will be known as the ________ Fund (the “Fund”).  Reasonable administrative costs may be charged to the Fund. World Missions Alliance may appropriate for expenditure or accumulate so much of the Fund as World Missions Alliance determines is prudent to support its objects and purposes, in accordance with applicable law and World Missions Alliance’s spending policies in effect from time to time. It is my intent, in order to best fulfill the purposes of World Missions Alliance, that World missions Alliance shall have flexibility in appropriating and spending from the Fund.]

Bequest of Non-Cash Property or Percentage of an Estate

If you are considering making a bequest of property other than cash, or if you are considering bequeathing a percentage of the total value of your estate, we recommend that you consult with your attorney to determine the applicable tax consequences and appropriate language for inclusion in your will or other estate planning documents.
