Bequest Gifts

There are several ways to make a bequest to the SPCA of Connecticut:

A fixed amount of money or specific property (stocks, real estates, investments, etc.).

Suggested language for an outright gift - I give and bequeath to the SPCA of Connecticut, a non-profit corporation located in Monroe, Connecticut, the sum of ($_________) to be used for its general purposes (or for a specific purpose, if indicated).

A residual bequest, leaving all or a percentage of the entire remainder of your estate after all is settled. Suggested language for a residuary clause - All the rest (or a percentage), residue, and remainder of my estate, both real and personal, I give, devise, and bequeath to the SPCA of Connecticut, a non-profit corporation located in Monroe, Connecticut to be used for its general purposes.
   
A contingent bequest, naming the SPCA as the recipient should another beneficiary not survive you. Suggested language for a contingent interest clause -

I give and bequeath to (name of the person) the sum of ($___________) in the event that he/she shall survive me. Should said (name of the person) predecease me, I give and bequeath said sum to the SPCA of Connecticut, a non-profit corporation located in Monroe, Connecticut to be used for its general purposes.
