Sample Bequest Language

Bequests are vital to the SS VIRGINIA V's continued operation in the Puget Sound.

The wording of a bequest provision will vary depending upon the type of gift you desire to make and whether such a gift may be restricted.  Examples of appropriate language are written below.  In all cases, you should consult with a qualified attorney who can review your goals in light of applicable federal and state laws and draft your will to reflect your specific wishes.  It is also important to consult with the Steamer Virginia V Foundation if you are considering a restricted gift to ensure that the proposed restriction can be honored.
