For many of us, there is a compelling need to make a difference – to leave a lasting impact on the people most dear to us and the world in which we live. The search for significance and desire to plan for the future leads many to ponder their legacy. What kind of legacy will you leave? A bequest is perhaps the easiest and most tangible way to have a lasting impact on the people and organizations that mean the most to you.
A charitable bequest is a bequest written in a Will or Trust that directs a gift to be made to a qualified exempt charity when you pass away. One benefit of a Charitable Bequest is that it enables you to further the good work of the El Paso Elks long after you are gone. Better yet, a Charitable Bequest can help you save estate taxes by providing your estate with a charitable deduction for the value of the gift. With careful planning, your family can also avoid paying income taxes on the assets they receive from your estate. Contact El Paso Lodge Treasurer about making a Charitable Bequest at 915-532-4441. On behalf of the volunteers of the El Paso Elks Lodge #187, thank you for your contribution to our important community programs.
