The tool is always free, whether you choose to include a gift to PIH or not (thank you for your thoughtful consideration!). If you have a large or complex estate, or if you simply prefer to work with an attorney, you can also use FreeWill to find a trust and estates attorney near you and create a list of documented wishes, which can save you time and money at the lawyer’s office.

Bequest Language for Donors

The following is intended to help you and your attorney in drafting a bequest that satisfies your individual interests.  As you consult your attorney on the selection of appropriate wording to reflect your own goals and intentions regarding PIH, be sure the organization’s correct legal name appears in all final documents as:

“Partners In Health, a Massachusetts nonprofit corporation, or its successor, Federal Tax Identification Number: 04-3567502.”

General Bequest of a stated sum of money may be worded:

“I give to Partners In Health, a Massachusetts nonprofit corporation, or its successor, Federal Tax Identification Number 04-3567502 [insert here the exact dollar amount].”

Specific Bequest of a certain asset from your estate may be worded:

“I give to Partners In Health, a Massachusetts nonprofit corporation, or its successor, Federal Tax Identification Number 04-3567502, [insert here a description of the particular property].”

A Residuary Bequest, after other bequests and expenses have been paid, may be worded:

“I give to Partners In Health, a Massachusetts nonprofit corporation, or its successor, Federal Tax Identification Number 04-3567502, all [or a portion] of the rest, residue and remainder of my estate.”

Contingent Bequest if the Testator is not survived by certain individuals:

“If [name/s of primary beneficiary/ies] do/es not survive me, or shall die within ninety (90) days from the date of my death, or as a result of a common disaster, then I give to Partners In Health, a Massachusetts nonprofit corporation, or its successor, Federal Tax Identification Number 04-3567502,  [insert here the exact dollar amount, description of property, or percentage of residual estate].”
