Legacy Giving

Ways to Leave a Legacy to Servite


A bequest is the most traditional way to provide for the future work of Servite High School. With a gift through your will or living trust, you retain full use of your gift during your life. There are several common forms of charitable bequests:

The official bequest language for Servite High School is: "I, [name], of [city, state, ZIP], give, devise and bequeath to Servite High School, Anaheim, CA (TAX ID # 95-2023055) [percentage of the estate or written amount or description of property] for [purpose].

General Bequest – specifies that Servite High School will receive a designated sum. For example: You decide to leave $50,000 to Servite High School.

Percentage Bequest- provides that a predetermined percentage of your estate will go to Servite High School. For example: By leaving 10% of your estate to Servite High School, your estate is not obligated to make the charitable bequest in the event of catastrophic estate losses.

Specific Bequest – allows you to designate particular property, such as furniture, paintings, stocks, or real estate, to go to Servite High School.

Residuary Bequest – directs that everything remaining in your estate after all general bequests, specific bequests and costs have been paid, will go to Servite High School.

Contingent Bequest – takes place only if a specific event occurs (or does not occur). For example: You can name Servite High School as a beneficiary of your will that is contingent upon a certain family member not being alive at the time of your death.

Life Insurance

Naming Servite High School as a beneficiary of an existing policy is simple and requires only filling out a change of beneficiary form. You can designate Servite a percentage beneficiary or as full beneficiary of a policy. Contact your tax advisor to obtain maximum tax-savings benefit.

Charitable Trust

Receive a life income and tax deduction by donating cash, securities or real property to a charitable trust with Servite as beneficiary.

Retirement Plan

You can reduce your estate and income tax by naming Servite High School as a beneficiary of your retirement plan with a specific dollar amount or percentage designation. Some Servite friends are naming the school as a secondary beneficiary of their retirement plan after the passing of their surviving spouse.
