As you plan for your future and reflect on the legacy you will leave behind, you can empower families in need through a planned gift with Austin Habitat for Humanity.
Make a Gift Through Your Will or Living Trust
One simple and flexible way to ensure that your legacy of empowerment continues for years to come is by making a gift in your will or living trust, known as a charitable bequest. You may share the suggested language below with your attorney:
“I hereby give and bequeath ___% [or $_________] of my estate to Austin Habitat for Humanity (Federal Tax ID# 74-2373217) to be used in the areas of greatest need as the board of directors may determine.”
Create Your Free Will Online
To help you get started on your plans and legacy, Austin Habitat for Humanity has partnered with FreeWill, an online tool that guides you through the process of creating a legally valid will or trust. It’s easy to use, accessible online and can be completed in 20 minutes. You can use this resource on its own or use it to document your wishes before finalizing your plans with an attorney.
Have you already included a gift in your will or trust? Please fill out this form to let us know! We would love to thank you for your generosity.
Do you have an IRA, 401(k), life-insurance policy, or any other assets not included in your will? If so, these are called non-probate assets and you must plan your beneficiaries for them separately. Use this online tool to make your plans and designate Austin Habitat for Humanity as a beneficiary of one or more of these assets.
