Ways To Give

Estate Planning

You have wonderful information to share – about how your clients can gain tax advantages now with a bequest later – a strategy that serves both your clients and the greater good.

Excellence can help you and your clients with guidance on establishing charitable funds in the future, as well as referrals to experts in estate planning methods including charitable bequests, charitable lead or remainder trusts and donations of retirement assets or insurance policies.

  • Your work in helping your clients with estate planning can build a caring legacy for them and inspire their families with a tradition of giving back.

About bequests

When your client wishes to make a bequest to Excellence, we can help you ensure your client’s wishes are carried out to the letter.

Naming Excellence in your client’s will or as a beneficiary of their retirement assets is as simple as adding a few lines:

“Leave x percent of my assets to The Foundation for Excellence in Mental Health Care (FEMHC), a nonprofit corporation, to be used to enhance (or create) a component fund (to be) known as the __________________ Fund.”

Please feel free to contact us for examples of other language useful for bequests.
