Bequests: Making a legacy gift to FOCB

A charitable bequest is one of the easiest ways you can leave a lasting impact on The Friends of the Cedarburg Bog.  

A bequest may be made in your will or trust directing a gift to The Friends of the Cedarburg Bog, Inc. With the help of an advisor, you can include language in your will or trust specifying a gift to be made to family, friends, or Friends of the Cedarburg Bog as part of your estate plan.

Benefits of Your Bequest

  • Receive estate tax charitable deduction.
  • Lessen the burden of taxes on your family.
  • Leave a lasting legacy.

Your Bequest Options: A bequest may be made in several ways:

  • Gift of a percentage of your estate
  • Gift of a specific dollar amount or asset
  • Gift from the balance or residue of your estate
  • Gift your retirement assets - A retirement asset, such as an IRA account, makes an excellent bequest to us. If the IRA were given to your family, much of the value may be lost through estate and income taxes. By designating Friends of the Cedarburg Bog, Inc. as the beneficiary of all or part of your IRA (using a beneficiary designation form provided by your custodian), the full value of the gift is transferred tax-free at your death and your estate receives an estate tax charitable deduction.

If you love the Cedarburg Bog and its Friends, and want to help support it for future generations, consider leaving a legacy gift behind by including The Friends of the Cedarburg Bog in your will. 

To leave a bequest, simply incorporate the following language in your estate plans: “I give [describe the gift] to the Natural Resources Foundation of Wisconsin [federal tax id #39-1572034], a nonprofit corporation organized and existing under the laws of Wisconsin and with a principal mailing address of PO Box 2317, Madison, WI 53701. This gift shall be designated to The Friends of the Cedarburg Bog, Inc.”
