Bequest Language

A bequest is one of the simplest ways to support the work of The Wilderness Society. With a bequest gift, you are helping to build future financial strength that will leave a legacy of wild places for all to enjoy.  If you wish to name The Wilderness Society in your will or trust, our full name and address should be used along with our Tax ID number.

Sample Bequest Language for your Will or Trust

“After fulfilling all other provisions, I hereby give, devise, and bequeath to The Wilderness Society (Federal Tax ID #53–0167933), a charitable organization duly incorporated under the laws of the District of Columbia and located at 1615 M Street, NW, Washington, DC  20036, ________ percent of the rest, residue, and remainder of my estate [or $_______ if specific amount].”
