It is easy to make a pledge of support to the SIOP Foundation through a bequest in your will or trust. You can make your bequest unrestricted or directed to a specific purpose such as a scholarship, research grant, or practica for students. In any case, you maintain control over the funds and can modify the amount or purpose during your lifetime.
Again, the benefits of legacy giving or bequests are:
Your assets remain under your control
You can change the purpose of your gift as conditions change
You can direct your gift to a specific purpose
Your estate benefits from freedom from estate or income taxes
Sample formats for bequests can be found here.
If you have questions as to the appropriateness of your gift or as to proper procedures, contact the SIOP Foundation.
