A bequest is like planting a seed of generosity, capable of multiplying its impact over time. By designating Mustard Seed Communities in your will, you can ensure your legacy supports a specific cause or our general mission. These gifts are exempt from federal estate taxes, and the estate tax charitable deduction may further benefit your heirs, allowing your contribution to flourish and grow for decades to come.

Bequests may be given as:

  • Specific Bequest: A specific bequest involves making a gift of a specific asset such as real estate, a car, other property or a gift for a specific dollar amount.
  • Percentage Bequest: Another kind of specific bequest involves leaving a specific percentage of your overall estate to charity.
  • Residual Bequest: A residual bequest is made from the balance of an estate after the will or trust has given away each of the specific bequests.
  • Contingent Bequest: A contingent bequest is made to charity only if the purpose of the primary bequest cannot be met.
