You can leave a lasting foundation by naming Habitat for Humanity Tucson in your Will. Consult with a financial advisor and attorney to learn how making a charitable bequest can help us continue to make a difference for years to come.
A charitable bequest is simply a distribution from your estate to a charitable organization through your last will and testament. There are different kinds of bequests. For each, you must use very specific language to indicate the precise direction of your assets, and to successfully carry out your final wishes. In any charitable bequest, be sure to name the recipient accurately.
