Legacy Giving: Sample Language

“I give (___dollars) or (a specific asset, such as securities, real estate or other property) or (all) or (___percent of the rest, residue, and remainder of my estate) to Community Music Center (CMC) in San Francisco, California (for its general purposes) or (for the following purpose:________________).”

While unrestricted gifts allow CMC to allocate funds to areas of greatest need, you may designate your bequest for a particular purpose, program or activity. In order to ensure that the evolving needs of future generations of music students are met, it is advisable to include the following language with restricted gifts:

“In the event that at some future time due to changed circumstances, in the judgment of the CMC Board, it becomes impractical to apply my bequest to the designated purpose(s), the CMC Board shall make such modifications as will appropriately recognize my interests in coordination with CMC priorities.”
