Wills and Bequests
Leaving a gift to the World Parrot Trust (WPT) in your estate is one of the most important contributions you can make. A bequest is a gift that ensures that the WPT can continue its critical work to protect parrots now and into the future.
How it works
- You can leave a future gift to WPT by including a bequest provision in your will or revocable trust.
- The World Parrot Trust receives the gift, and applies it according to your wishes.
Making a planned gift such as this is a wonderful way to show your support and appreciation for the WPT’s mission of protecting parrots and nature while accommodating your own personal, financial, estate-planning, and philanthropic goals. With smart planning, you may actually increase the size of your estate and/or reduce the tax burden on your heirs. Just as importantly, you will know that you have made a meaningful contribution to WPT.
What are the benefits?
- During your lifetime your assets remain in your control.
- If your circumstances change, you can change your bequest.
- Your bequest can be directed to a specific purpose (be sure to check with WPT to make sure your gift can be used as intended).
- No upper limit exists on the estate tax deductions that can be taken for charitable bequests.
- Your gift will benefit WPT in the future as you intend.
Bequests and other planned gifts from forward-thinking individuals play a crucial role in WPT's continued ability to save endangered species by supporting innovative and effective conservation programs.
