The Easiest Way to Make a Lasting Impact
By including a charitable gift, called a bequest, in your will or living trust, you can make a plan today to support our work after your lifetime—after you've used your assets to support you and your loved ones.
Following are more advantages of bequests:
- Easy. A few sentences in your will or living trust complete the gift.
- Revocable. Until your will or trust goes into effect, you are free to alter your plans.
- Versatile. You can bequeath a specific item, an amount of money, a gift contingent upon certain events or a percentage of your estate to the Air Force Academy.
