Leaving A Legacy

Legacy Giving

Leaving a bequest to Teen Cancer America is a great way to ensure a legacy that lasts. You can choose to leave your legacy to Teen Cancer America in your will or revocable trust, or name Teen Cancer America a partial, full, or contingent beneficiary of your retirement account or your life insurance policy. You can choose to leave a restricted bequest if you want your legacy to go towards a specific project or hospital.

You can base your gift on a percentage of your estate, choose to leave a predetermined amount, or choose to leave the balance left over of your estate to Teen Cancer America.

Teen Cancer America is a 501(c)3 charitable organization and bequests are eligible for an estate tax deduction.

How to Set Up A Charitable Bequest

In order to set up a charitable bequest, plan an appointment with your estate planner or attorney.

In your meeting, you may discuss your assets and how they’ll be distributed. You may want to include your financial planner, accountant, and/or tax advisor in this conversation. You may need to bring our tax documents with you or send them to your estate planner beforehand in order to establish your gift.
